CPR and AED (Defibrillator) in Augmented Reality
Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops beating regularly and can no longer pump blood through the body. There are a variety of causes – heart attack, drowning, stroke, electrocution, suffocation or other trauma. With over 500,000 cardiac arrests occurring each year, CPR training can mean the difference between life and death.
CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is a first aid procedure that involves chest compressions that help to preserve oxygenated blood flow to the brain and other vital organs, until normal cardiac rhythm can be restored. Every second counts when the heart is no longer beating: chance of survival decreases by 10% every minute without assistance. If you know how to handle cardiac arrest, the victim's chances of survival and recovery can improve up to 30%.
The American Heart Association reports that 70% of people feel helpless in the event of a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to effectively administer CPR or their CPR certification has lapsed. This AR simulator is the ideal tool for learning CPR for the first time, or as a refresher after initial medical training.
