New technology can help to spread knowledge and skills related to cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Historically, virtual methods have not been strongly recommended for Consell Català de Resuscitació (CCR), but many authors have begun to investigate new methods for achieving lower costs, widespread distribution, increased accessibility to information and more frequent updates of content. Moodle platforms, videos, web pages and other technologies have been introduced in the learning world. The authors posit that a blended approach of traditional methods with virtual methods without moving away from standard recommendations could facilitate the introduction of these new methods into our teaching practice. In this article, the authors present how to design a blended method. The first pilot test was designed with undergraduate medical and nursing students in their fourth year. Their suggestions led the authors to use the Moodle platform of their University as a conductive thread. A second pilot with non-students led to the need for a website where the learners could find the videos with e-learning content. Three videos were seen during the practice time. The debate notes the need for having an official method of blended or virtual approaches to teach Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in an efficient and cost-saving way.
