Ratings and Reviews
I usually forget how to use the slings for the different applications maybe a part on the app with the correct techniques for the corresponding injury could help
iPhone offloads the app if not used regularly!
This isn’t an issue with the app but a problem with iPhones/iPads. If you don’t use an app regularly, I found out it gets offloaded automatically by my iPhone. Basically that means the app and all the data gets put on the cloud and you have to download it again to access it. It’s to help with storage I think. You have to go deep into Settings to turn this feature off.
In the case of the First Aid app (that I’ve luckily never needed to use in an emergency), this could lead to devastating problems. Let’s say the app gets offloaded without you realising and you don’t have enough credit to download it onto your phone during an emergency, there could be huge repercussions. Anyway, I didn’t know where else to make this issue known... It’s something to be aware of.
Good resource but quite limited and missing vital info
Some pretty important first aid issues are missing such as strokes, seizures, heart attack (there is chest pain but this only seems to cover angina), dislocations, heat exhaustion/heat stroke, hypothermia and hyperthermia, and head, neck, spinal, abdominal and pelvic injuries. Also how about some advice on bandages, pads, slings, first aider safety (e.g. gloves and other PPE) and other first aid necessities?
