American Heart Association Down with the iPhone


The Apple iPhone has been on the tip of tech-savvy tongues for awhile now. If you don’t have an iPhone, chances are you wouldn’t mind having one. The features aren’t endless but close enough and now the American Heart Association (AHA) has jumped on the bandwagon.

The AHA created its first application for the Apple iPhone: Pocket First Aid & CPR. This new application allows users to review first aid procedures regardless of whether or not they’re in cell-phone range. The AHA application is available for download at the Apple iTunes Store for only $3.99.

Featured in the first aid and CPR application are hundreds of illustrated pages covering topics such as CPR, choking, bites, bruises, burns, seizures and diabetic emergencies. If page browsing isn’t for you don’t fret – twenty detailed videos are also part of the application entailing how to respond to critical first aid situations and instructions on handling choking, CPR, seizures, cuts and wounds.

If that weren’t enough the application features an additional component where users may store their family’s medical information including emergency and doctors’ contact information, allergies, medications and insurance information. How’s that for immediate patient background answers?
