Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
When you arrive at the scene of an emergency the first few minutes are decisive. The life of an injured person can depend on whether you carry out the correct measures or not. This guide, compiled in collaboration with the Johanniter Ambulance (the German sister organization oft the St John ambulance), will help you to render first aid quickly and competently. The contents are, of course, in accordance with the newest first-aid guidelines.
In contrast to other methods, it is not necessary to make a diagnosis (for instance, heart attack). You choose from six guiding symptoms to find out what the situation is. The App will then lead you through the correct measures to be undertaken. These are explained step by step with clear illustrative material. For instance:
● Recovery position
● Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (listen to the correct frequency)
● Using the defibrillator
● Making the emergency call
● Life-saving grip
● Measures in the case of injury
● Checking breathing
Refresh your first-aid knowledge with this App! In addition to this you have all the emergency measures at your fingertips on your iPhone/iPod Touch. And don’t forget, this knowledge is not a luxury, it’s a must!
In the series KNOW-IT-ALL there are different Apps available in interesting and useful fields of knowledge. Further topics on offer are:
- Wines and grapes
- Recognizing architectural epochs
- Clouds & weather
We look forward to your feedback and suggestions for improvement.
What's New in Version 1.7
New imprint page
This is such a great app! I'm am currently only 13 years old but I want to be in the medical career when I'm older, and this is such a great app to help you learn about the help you can give without the need of any doctors/nurses around you (in some cases) xx GREAT APP DEFFO DOWNLOAD!! :)
Fair enough basic refresher but this app put me in an embarrassing situation whilst I was browsing through the tabs, I looked into emergency services out of curiosity and my country and it started calling them, ridiculously surely everyone will be accidentally calling them with this app?
OUT OF DATE INFORMATION
The information about CPR is out of date the compression rate is 120 per min NOT 100 You depress the chest 5-6 cm or 1/3 of the body mass NOT 4-5cm. This information changed some months ago. (this information was given out by St Johns)
This app has mistakes ok for some information but look elsewhere
