Demo of new smartphone app that instructs and guides the provider of CPR to a victim.


Demonstration of new cell phone app that instructs and guides the provider of CPR to a victim before and during its administration. Such guidance is important as successful resuscitation requires adequate oxygen saturation which is a function of the speed and pressure of the compressions. In an emergency situation, even the most highly trained professional would benefit from onsite coaching.
