In an article published in the JAMA Cardiology, authors study training in CPR from “Lifesaver VR” application. Even if skills of face-to-face trained people are better than those of VR trained, the use of VR training is a perfect solution to widen the access to CPR training, because of its low cost and short time duration.
“This study confirms the potential of brief face-to-face training to achieve adequate CPR skills and provides valuable input for further development of VR training,” the authors wrote. “Although VR may lead to more widely disseminated CPR training, this study suggests that it should be developed further to achieve CPR skills comparable with those acquired by face-to-face training, particularly in terms of compression depth.”
