CPRD Training Kit For Low-Middle Income Settings

Cprd header

A human-centered approach to communicating a life saving procedure


Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a major cause of death - especially in low- to middle income countries


However, the basic Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and Defibrillation (CPR/CPRD) skills needed to save lives aren’t nearly as widespread in underserved communities. 


Although the CPRD protocol is universal, how its content is structured can make a meaningful difference for effective training and learning. With this in mind, we created a design framework to allow easy visual and language adaptation of this life-saving procedure.


Using context-specific visuals in a guided approach, the CPRD Training Kit helps users to recognize and remember signs of cardiac arrest and instructs the critical steps for effective resuscitation and defibrillation. The tool embraces inclusion and diversity in its design to support effective training and knowledge retention of the CPRD skills in various socio-cultural contexts - worldwide.

What our  designers say

Simona Rocchi


Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation is one of the techniques people may be afraid to perform, but by having adapted visuals which are simple everyone can learn easily and have a better retention.
