Very useful App - Some suggestions


The App is very good as it covers all the common emergency situations with clear and easy to follow first aid advice. It is better than other first aid apps I have tried.

Some suggestions in case they help (note: I am not medically trained):
1. Most emergency topics cover basic First Aid very well for the first few minutes or up to an hour while waiting for an Ambulance and/or professional medical help to arrive.

In many situation an Ambulance and/or professional medical help could be up to 12 hours away (e.g. remote camping / bushwalking, backpacking in Wilderness areas, no mobile phone signal, vehicle breakdown).

*** I would very much like to see an extra topic for each section giving some basic advice for First Aid treatment after the first hour. ***

2. Using "Heatstroke" and "Hypothermia" terms can be a bit confusing. Although it is good to use the correct medical term some people may not know what Hypothermia is and most people confuse Hypo- and Hyper- thermia.

Would you please consider relabelling these two sections as:

"Heatstroke (HyPERthermia)"
"Dangerously cold (HyPOthermia)"

Thanks for listening. :)

What the other user said...


It would be fantastic to see the ads popping up while you’re looking for information that could probably save someone’s life. Seriously, thanks for keeping this app ad-free!



You guys should use ads.
Every 10 minutes you should show an ad.
It will give you money to use to save lives
