Duke CPR app is an essential download for everyone without formal CPR training

The Duke CPR app is the product of a partnership between the Duke Heart Center and the Women’s Health Initiative to help educate people about compression-only CPR.

The app is appropriately basic in design. It opens with three options: Crisis Mode, CPR Training Mode, and Learn More.


In CPR Training Mode, users are walked through a series of videos that go over why CPR is important and step-by-step guidance on how to perform CPR. Despite the fact that the videos feature Duke athletes, they are well done and include a good combination of animations and live demonstrations. Videos go full screen when the phone is in landscape.

In Crisis Mode, the app gets straight to the point with step-by-step instructions including diagrams and brief, direct spoken instructions. In a nice touch, after checking that the victim is unresponsive, there is a quick dial button to call 911.
