App killed my hamster.
So, this is interesting. Now I live alone in my house with just me, my cats, and my dead hamster. I work as a self-employed construction worker, and I was just getting back from knocking down this wall when I heard the scream.
The hamster was caught underneath his pull up bar and was squirming. I rushed downstairs and started yelling: "Tod are you okay?". He spiritually answered me and I started screaming at the cats to get help. They ran and i moved in to help Tod.
With all my might, i pulled him out and brought him to the baby changing station i had installed in my kitchen. i took this grate class in medical scool so im rellly good at first ade. I kept pushing down on him while i was looking at this ap thing. It said to give CPR to the individual and push down as hard as possible and so i did and Tod was crushed to death when i brought a pickaxe from my job.
The more i think about it Tod was fine and i didnt need to do it. i keep him in a garbage bag and mourn his loss every day with his shrine in the kitchen. One of the cats never came back and the other four came back.
I think i should "punish" them. If they got help Tod would still be alive. stupid $^&^%$&**** cats.
Clear and concise first aid and cpr guide
Includes learning/review modules intended to be read at your leisure, as well as an "Emergency" section intended as a guide during a real incident. Learning portions provide both the how and why of procedures, with FAQs and quizzes. Emergency portions are clear, concise, and practical, with an option to call 911 from within the app when appropriate for the particular emergency. App is very intuitive and user-friendly. Obviously, it's no substitute for hands-on training and certification, but the material can be easily understood by those with no prior training, and is a great refresher for those who are certified but want to brush up or need a quick-as-possible review when an emergency arises.
It's unbelievably basic. This won't really help in an emergency situation as it takes too long to get to the very limited information, although I feel it's purpose is not to be used in an emergency.
Most subjects just refer you to call 911 which is the best thing if you don't have proper training.
I'd like to see an app that focuses attention on what to do when one is out of communication range and needs to take care of both immediate and extended care; i.e., wilderness medical practice.
