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!
