University of Oxford | April 2019 | LIFE a new smartphone app to train healthworkers to save lives

Life-saving Instruction for Emergencies (LIFE) is a free 3D simulation training app for smartphones developed by a research group based at KEMRI-Wellcome Trust – Kenya and Oxford University. 

The app is scenario-based and teaches healthcare workers to identify and manage medical emergencies using game-like training techniques to reinforce key steps that need to be performed to save lives.

The app was launched at the  Kenya Paediatric Association 2019 annual conference in Mombasa, Kenya.

The first three scenarios available for LIFE teach healthcare workers how to resuscitate a newborn baby (source: University of Oxford).

The app is available for Android 

It can also be downloaded from the OXlife project
