Because medical personnel will not always be readily available, soldiers must rely heavily on their own skills and knowledge of life-sustaining methods to survive on the integrated battlefield. The Army First Aid manual is a quick source of critical medical information.
With over 600 page of information, the Army First Aid app brings the Army’s First Aid manual to you.
Army First Aid contains information on:
* Basics of first aid
* Rescue breathing techniques
* Stopping bleeding
* Checking for shock
* Dressings and bandages
* Signs and symptoms of fractures
* Heat and cold injuries
* Bites – snake, mammals, humans
* Rescue carries
For this version of this app, we have supplemented the Army's manual with the following critical references:
* Anatomy and Physiology
* Health and Fitness Calculators
* Dangerous Fish and Mollusks
* Dangerous Insects and Spiders
* Poisonous Plants
* Poisonous Snakes and Lizards
You may have to depend upon your first aid knowledge and skills to save yourself or someone you love. You may be able to save a life, prevent permanent disability, or reduce long periods of hospitalization by knowing WHAT to do, WHAT NOT to do, and WHEN to seek medical assistance.

* Improved graphics
* Support for iPhone 5 and iOS 6.
* Share pages through email or AirPrint

Good for Trauma
From a quick look-over, this seems to be just what it says. Worth well more than the $2 pricetag. Seems to cover all the most likely kinds of trauma.
But, for example, there's nothing on a stroke.
Here's what you need to know for that:
Face Drooping on one side. Ask person to SMILE. If smile lopsided, it’s a stroke.
Arm Weakness….ask person to raise both arms. If one drifts downward, it’s a stroke.
Speech Difficulty….ask to repeat simple sentence like “the sky is blue”. If it’s slurred, or mis spoken, it’s a stroke.
Take Action…call 911 or go immediately to ER if any of the above are evident.
