Would you know what to do?
Lifesaver is a live-action movie that you play like a game. It shows you how to save someone's life in four action-packed scenarios - including a brand new teen-focused scenario. It throws you into the heart of the action as you make crucial decisions and learn essential life-saving skills.
An estimated 60,000 people each year in the UK have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and, sadly, less than 10% of those people will survive. Yet, if a bystander is able to start CPR they could double a person's chances of survival.
The Resuscitation Council (UK) has combined forces with award-winning production company UNIT9, to develop Lifesaver, a revolutionary new way to learn CPR. It was written and directed by BAFTA award-winner Martin Percy, and features the actress Daisy Ridley
(Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens).
Lifesaver was launched in May 2013 and has scooped four gold and one silver e-learning awards, and a People's Voice Webby winner in the Education and Reference (handheld devices) category. In September 2017, it was updated to include a brand-new scenario focused on young people and Lifesaver VR, a virtual reality version
, was launched to bring digital CPR into new dimensions.
Lifesaver is currently on display in the Wellcome Collection’s Can Graphic Design Save Your Life?
