First Aid Apps

Written by on July 16, 2014 in PC Mike's NBC-TV stories with 0 Comments

Summertime is the busy time… for travel, outdoor fun and…. Accidents. The experts tell us the warm weather months are when most accidental injuries occur. That’s why it makes good sense to have some first aid apos on our smartphones and tablets.

The first app I recommend is the Red Cross First Aid App. It puts expert advice for everyday emergencies in your hand. Available for iPhone and Android devices, it gives instant access to the information you need to know to handle the most common first aid emergencies through videos, interactive quizzes and simple step-by-step advice.

And while you’re at it, pick up the Red Cross Pet First Aidapp. It costs 99-cents for Apple and Android devices but it offers the same easy to follow instructions on what to do if our dog or cat is hurt in an accident.

Want more detailed info? Check out the U.S. Army First Aid Manual for the iPhone. This has much more detailed info, 600 pages worth. There are drawings and diagrams and information aimed at helping you save lives. The cost for this app is $1.99.
