Resuscitate! CPR AED & Choking
By Stone Meadow Development LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Developed as a public service by leading physicians and educators in emergency care at the University of Washington and King County EMS, the Resuscitate application provides instant information on how to perform CPR, operate four commonly available Automated External Defibrillators (AED) and how to aid a choking victim. These are short video demonstrations (about 1 minute) and are compatible with the latest recommendations from the major international resuscitation organizations including the American Heart Association and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).
This application is not a substitute for proper training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, AED or choking aid but it is very useful for a quick review. We urge everyone to receive formal instruction in CPR/AED and how to assist a choking victim--being trained may help you save a life. More information on CPR/AED and choking aid may be found at learncpr.org and learnaed.org.
The videos were produced with the assistance of the University of Washington, the Life Sciences Discovery Fund, the Medic One Foundation, King County Emergency Medical Services, the Seattle Fire Department, the Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine and the Heart Rescue Medtronic Foundation. They, like us are convinced that teaching these life saving techniques to as many people as possible will save lives.
Go ahead. Download the app, share it with your friends, help people get trained.
What's New in Version 2.0.1
Changed the name, it's not just for iPad anymore! Fixed AirPlay related crash in very old versions of the operating system (iOS versions 4.0-4.2 that don't support AirPlay no longer have the option)
Helpful for lay rescuers
This app is very helpful for lay rescuers. I am AHA certified instructor for over 20 years. I frequently teach Family and Friends CPR. I always show this this app at the end of class and recommend they download it for backup in case of emergency. To address a previous comment. The only rescuers who perform pulse checks are medical professionals. That component was removed for the lay rescuers many years ago. As for mouth to mouth, if one is performing on a family member they usually are not uncomfortable using that method. On older children and adults "Hands Only" is perfectly acceptable.
Great for non-professionals
To address a previous comment ... ALGORITHMS ... Really?! How is the average person having a picnic at the park supposed to diagnosis & treat that?!? I'm almost positive this app is NOT intended for cardiologists or the nursing staff of the cardiac wing at a hospital! It's irresponsible jabs that bring down GOOD apps b/c people see a low rating and skip over a very nice app for something else!
This video is helpful for the LAY rescuer. The AHA standards for Lay Rescuers (i.e. Family and Friends CPR) does *not* inculde pulse checks. This is a decent app.....it is not intended for medical professionals and should not be held to that standard. As for Mouth to Mouth, that is optional for adults and is recommeded for infants and children.
