What to Expect

First off it’s very important to point out that this app can be extremely helpful and provide you with very useful tips and information but it is not in any means meant to replace an actual CPR course. It can act as a wonderful companion tool to a course or just provide you with at least the base knowledge so you are a little better prepared in an emergency situation. Now with that said what can you look forward to when using this app.

Launch the app to be taken to the main menu. There are a couple of different sections here: you can learn about first aid to be used on adults, children, and babies. Many people don’t even realize there are different ways to perform first aid on the different age groups. Tap on any of the groups and there will be the steps laid out. Tap on the individual step to watch a video illustration to ensure you aren’t left with any questions.
