Lifesaving App...take a look.

Everyone has seen the Vinnie Jones staying alive 'advert'!
Well here is the App, and what as n App. Definitely the best App ever.
Take a look. It could save someone's life. Smiley

Just installed it on my phone.  Hopefully I'll never have to use it but it's there if need be.  Thanks DB Smiley

PocketCPR for Android is to be used for CPR education, training and practice only. It is not cleared by the FDA for use on humans.

I assume that is to prevent any claims should you be seen using your android while giving CPR!
Interesting app but not that helpful to someone who has completed a CPR already.

Re: Lifesaving App...take a look.

Mav, I think this App is great because,as any first-aider will tell you, in a heart attack situation any action is better than no action. As for the prosecution fears...the British heart foundation point out that in the UK there has been no prosecution as a result of anything anyone has done in a first aid situation.
Incidentally, I am a first aider, and have been for over twenty years. Complete with refresher courses every two years.
I am using this App to teach my grandchildren the basis in a fun way, without making it frivolous.

Re: Lifesaving App...take a look.

I posted about this method of CPR some time back.  It is being taught to all children in the US.

I think the app posted by DB is excellent.
