For this World Restart a Heart Day, we at Snap have partnered with The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and social technology company GoSpooky, to launch a new augmented reality lens that aims to raise awareness and teach Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
World Restart a Heart Day is a global initiative to raise awareness and education of CPR and Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in the community and takes place every year on 16 October.
It’s important, because according to the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, seven out of ten cardiac arrests happen in front of bystanders, however fewer than 20% of people end up providing first aid.
This new educational AR experience will let you learn about CPR and takes you through a true-to-life example where you can walk around the people performing the techniques and answer quizzes to test your knowledge. You can even participate in interactive games to understand the rhythm of how to perform chest compressions!
To try the lens, scan the Snapcode below, or visit the IFRC Global First Aid Reference Center to learn more and book a first aid course in real life.
