You are at home cooking and all of a sudden the knife slips and we make a cut, or something that is also common, we get burned with the pan. Right now the first thing that comes to mind is to run to the sink and wash with water, but should we do something else? What is the correct first aid for this kind of thing? Android has the solution to our emergency problems with St John Ambulance, a complete guide that seeks to give us a hand in our medical emergencies.
The application is already very popular for Apple users, and it has been greatly liked by many. But is it really that useful? Let the CEO of the developer tell us: “More than 140,000 people die each year in situations where first aid could have saved their lives. Even basic first aid saves lives, and it is our mission to ensure that more and more people have this training. There is no substitute for learning first aid other than attending a course for it, but this application will make it easier for people who do not have this training to be able to save a life.
St John Ambulance It is based on four fundamental pillars, which are the following. On the one hand, it covers our needs in Major First Aid. These are those situations of high urgency, where the tension rises to the maximum exponents. here we find up to 12 different situations in which he shows us how we should act step by step. It is difficult to think clearly in such difficult moments, by following this app we will have an effective guide of what things we have to do, and we can devote all our attention to doing them, not thinking about them.
But not all are serious situations, sometimes they are in those milder situations in which we do not know how to act. For this, we are offered the pattern of action in up to six different situations in which we will be able to know the reactions to the differences, actions that we carry out, and what we can do step by step to get out of the way until we can receive more specialized assistance.
Another key to the application is the techniques. The theory is simple, a person goes into cardiac arrest, we take the defibrillator, and we bring it out of the stop. However, the vast majority of us have never used any of them, and although supposedly now there are those who do it all alone, we do not know to what extent we are going to be blocked in those moments. Therefore, developing the performance techniques in each case can be very useful. St John Ambulance teaches us the following:
- Assessment of the situation
- Treatment of shock
- How to use the defibrillator
- Cause opening of the airways
- Retrieve the position of a subject
It is important to know them in order to know how to act in emergency situations, and having previously familiarized ourselves well with these techniques can get us out of trouble.
By last, St John Ambulance It is also an informative application, which provides us with details about what a kit should carry or how we can contact emergency services.
