iSimulate provides software for University-backed child CPR study
AUCKLAND, N.Z. — A new study from the University of Auckland will use iSimulate technology to evaluate the child resuscitation skills of New Zealand lifeguards.
Working in conjunction with iSimulate, honorary lecturer Jonathon Webber will examine the "competence and attitudes" of nearly 250 lifeguards when it comes to child CPR.
Webber, who works in the University's Department of Anesthesiology, says he has contacted 17 lifeguard organizations in New Zealand's northern region to collect data from lifeguards aged 16 years and over. The information will be used to guide future training for New Zealand's lifeguards and first responders in case they may need to administer CPR on a child.
Researchers will use a child CPR mannequin equipped with data capturing hardware and software. iSimulate, the company helping University researchers with this project, has modified their software in order to collect data relevant to this project. The survey and practical, which ends in mid-February 2017, will take around 20 minutes to complete.
iSimulate provides world class simulation systems that are a realistic and cost effective solution to organisations across the world. Our mantra is simple – use the best of current mobile technology to create products that are more advanced, simpler to use and more cost effective than traditional simulation solutions.
