There are simply hundreds of apps out there to help give parents more resources at their fingertips. However, of all the apps that I have encountered, this First Aid app by the Australian Red Cross is one of the most useful, and one that would be worth it's weight in gold if you were faced with an emergency. And the best bit is that it's totally free.

First aid at your fingertips


About the App

The app features 4 main sections:

1) Learn

As the title of this section suggests, this is the area of the app where you can learn all about different areas of first aid. The menu covers 22 topics where you get to watch an overview video in addition to learning about the different steps for treatment.

Easy to watch videos help you to learn


Some sections feature helpful Q&A's in addition to the clear and easy to understand instructions.

2) Prepare

Make an emergency kit


This section helps you consider and learn all about being prepared in the event of an emergency situation. The topics cover ensuring that your household is protected against the unthinkable with great resources for forward planning including evacuation routes, emergency kits and evil animal evacuation. Many sections include links to additional helpful resources. If you live in an area that is likely to be impacted by flooding or live in a bush fire risk area, this section is a must for you.

3) Emergency

This section of the app, is specifically designed for when you are in an emergency or an emergent situation where you need fast facts quickly. Throughout this section there is easy access to dial 000. For some topics, such as 'unconscious' the app goes interactive, asking for you to indicate the state of your patient. Whilst 000 would often be dialled for a such dire circumstances, providing immediate first aid as first on scene, can make a real difference, so this app that will remind you of how many compressions to breaths and many more helpful facts, literally could be life saving.

4) Tests

Test yourself until you get full marks


Finally, once you've been through the learning sections of the app, a great way to see how well the information has sunk in is to use the self test section of this app. If you don't get perfect test results, then you can just revisit the topic and test yourself again when you are ready.

In addition to these main sections, there are also links in the 'more' tab to find out more about the work of the Red Cross in addition to finding out where your nearest first aid course is.

Review

This is an exceptional free app that whilst designed for anyone, is a must have for parents of children so that should an accident or emergency situation unravel, then help is literally at hand. Being first on the scene in an accident and knowing the basics for first aid could save a life.

The app has received over 2 million downloads from the US and UK, so it's thoroughly tested and is a quick and easy way to improve your knowledge of first aid, and have a repository on hand to back you up in a serious situation whilst you are waiting for help to arrive.

Verdict: Highly Recommended.
