Completed a first aid course a while ago and this app was recommended to me. This is worthwhile for anyone to download as it is so user-friendly. Lots of information, videos and short quizzes to help you understand how to apply first aid in a variety of situations. If you ever need to give first aid and aren't sure what to do, this app goes through it step by step. I highly recommend it!
I'm shocked that the Red Cross could give such poor advice. This app suggests you should give sugar in a "diabetic emergency" without establishing whether you are dealing with a hyper- or hypo-glycemic condition. This could be worse than doing nothing and could even be fatal!
This app should NOT be used by those who have not done a first aid course. If you are a competent first-aider this may be OK to keep your skills refreshed but you MUST refresh your skills with face to face tuition, not using an app. So 3 stars as a revision app but it needs updating urgently.
Confidence and skill building!
The life-skills taught in this app are well-presented through videos, diagrams and text. The self-tests are a useful assessment tool. The app was recommended to me by my First Aid trainer. I am very grateful for this handy means of review that can be used repeatedly.
I hope to reinforce and consolidate the learning from the one day BRC First Aid training course I did so that I can confidently and effectively respond in an emergency situation.
