DALLAS, July 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Emergency information is just one touch away with the American Heart Association's new Pocket First Aid & CPR application for the Apple iPhone.
This is the association's first iPhone application. Users can download the application to review first aid procedures, anytime, anywhere. First aid instructions are available even when out of cell-phone range.
Powered by Jive Media, the application is available for download at Apple's iTunes store. The cost to download is $3.99 and the application features hundreds of pages with illustrations -- topics include CPR, choking, bites, bruises, burns, seizures and diabetic emergencies. Twenty high-quality and detailed videos show how to respond in critical first aid situations and contain instructions on treating choking, CPR, seizures, cuts and wounds.
An additional component of the application is a phone-based medical profile feature, where users can store their family's medical information. The application can save doctors' contact information, emergency contacts, allergies, medications and insurance information for quick access in an emergency. The information is only stored on the individual's phone and is deleted if the application is removed from the phone.
