    Practical training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation presents a problem because of the shortage of teacher time and the many potential trainees. A resuscitation teaching room in district general hospital has been established, equipped with training mannikins and models, together with wall diagrams and cassette recordings. The arrangement enables many trainees to gain training in small groups with minimal demand on teachers. Experience with the room in use has suggested that the concept may have an application in many district general hospitals and possibly also in large industrial concerns.
