“My desire to help is always strong, but I feel uneasy performing CPR in an emergency when I don't remember all the steps.”
John, a full-time music professor, requires a refresher on CPR procedures as he needs to be prepared for any emergency at home and in the workplace.
• Refresh the memory of the steps for performing CPR
• Provide guided steps with possible audio assistance to explain each step clearly
• Distinguish the appropriate steps to take when performing CPR on babies, children, or adults
• Possesses CPR certification but lacks regular practice leading to difficulty in recalling the process
• In emergencies, previously attempted to use other resources but failed to find a satisfactory application.

“Would love a platform to study at home and, if needed, continue learning while commuting to work.”
Nancy, a full-time worker, wishes to learn CPR but cannot spare time to obtain certification due to her busy schedule. Nevertheless, she is willing to practice from home and continue learning on the go as needed.
• Busy schedule requires an online learning option to study CPR on own schedule
• Convenient to study from home and continue learning during the commute
• Portable tool on the phone desired as a precautionary measure for emergency CPR performance
• Limited time prevents obtaining CPR certification
• Fear and uncertainty about emergencies
• Seeking a single platform that offers certification or alternative learning options to save lives

The usability study yielded the following key results:
Enabling CPR Guide
Navigating CPR Steps
Alternative, clear labels and easily accessible options were available to users to navigate the app. Alt text was added to images, and color contrast was ensured to meet accessibility standards.
Simple navigation cards were implemented for easy swiping and category selection. Users have multiple options to return to the previous screen or main menu.
Effortless navigation was enhanced by incorporating icons and accessible audio during a call. Upon opening the home screen, users are immediately guided on how to initiate CPR emergency assistance in case of an emergency.
Website Responsive Designs
Conduct final research to evaluate the success of the app and website in achieving the goal of saving lives during a CPR emergency and teaching CPR on the go.
Include additional educational resources for pet owners to learn CPR procedures for their pets.
Offer digital badges and credentials for users who successfully complete accredited learning components.
