Found 1st Feb 2014
I saw this today, its a good app. Gives some gold advice and some basic first aid tips.

Compatible with a large range of phones as well.

St John Ambulance has announced that its highly popular first aid app has now been ported to the Android mobile phone platform. The app which gives users advice on how to treat a range of emergencies, as well as minor injuries, has proven to be the difference between life and death.

Launched in 2010, the ‘St John Ambulance First Aid’ app became an instant success and was the UK’s best selling health and fitness app on iPhones. It has now been downloaded by almost 170,000 people – and the charity has learnt that it has already saved a life, when a mother got in touch to say she was able to give first aid to her choking baby, thanks to the app.

App is free to download from Google Play or iTunes

The app gives useful advice on how to deal with effects of the cold, such as hypothermia and frostbite. It also demonstrates how to cope with emergencies such as choking or heart attacks. The charity is urging Android and iPhone users to download the app so they have the first aid information they need to save a life or provide support while waiting for help to arrive, particularly important during winter months when ambulance waiting times may be longer.

The app features easily accessible step-by-step information, an intuitive interface and voice prompts for several first aid techniques.

You never know when it will come in handy

As a First Aider you can easily become rusty, this is a great app to have on your phone to refresh your memory when you have some free time.... not feasible to use it in a situation as there is enough going on.... but a really fantastic tool

driving home in pouring rain last night, a person lying on road after push bike accident. Thankfully ambulance was in attendance, but thought crossing my mind was what could I do if first on scene...sweet FA probably. Hopefully this app will change that! Thanks op.

Thanks op, heat added

When I got the British Red Cross app for Iphone, it was free. Also a solid app, very useful.

Just got the credit card sized booklet this morning, very handy to have though I hope I never need to use it!

Prefer my way, more comprehensive.
Don't get sh*tty primary & secondary surveys by the trauma team in ED that miss vital injuries including injuries of the C-spine.
Patients that are sent over to the unit, who need a thorough tertiary assessment and investigations that should have been done in the referring hospital.

Airway has got to be more important than a spinal injury surely? He/she is dead/not breathing but their spine is fine.......

It's "St John Ambulance", not St. john's Ambulance or any other wacky and weird variation.

Great idea. Heat added

Thanks

"Oh, you look like you need first aid? Hang on, let me pull up my app!"

Much better than red cross in my opinion, but I am biased as my old-man was the longest serving 'brother' in their order in Wales (68 years).

i got this ages ago and was free. im a first aider for work. and your correct worrying about a broken spine when the person isnt breathing

just had to look at the comments to see who would point out the "s"

Good app to have.
