Public health studies have shown that women are 27% less likely than men to receive bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) when suffering an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. We are working to create a female anatomical CPR training adjunct, the “LifeSaveHer” that will attach over existing CPR mannequins on the market to provide a realistic, low-cost model for performing CPR on someone with breasts. This device will be used to generate interest and discussion around disparities in CPR initially at CPR classes taught on MIT and Harvard’s campuses, reaching over 1000 people annually, and these trials will later be used to partner with the AHA to have a national roll-out of improved diversity in CPR training tools and education about demographic disparities in CPR.
