Basic app with little innovation

While good to see St Johns putting official info / instruction in the iPhone app space; there is little innovation recognizing the power of the smartphone platform. They would do well to look at some of the other first aid apps that use video / audio / ebooks that provide complete first aid instruction. Even Jamie Oliver has a 100mb+ app and that's for cooking. I hope we have a single NZ wide app, not 1 for CPR, 1 for bandages, 1 for poisons, etc.

Good start

Great to see a New Zealand first aid app, but it's very basic. App just has a basic slideshow arrangement for the steps of CPR and the ol' 30 compressions / 2 breaths. And a button to call an emergency number. That's it. No timing for babies/kids, no info on how far to compress / how much rescue breath to use, no info on how to handle different hazards at the scene. No instructions on how to handle other situations like fits/bleeding/choking.

Great and very useful

Fantastic App, I like it cause you'll never know that you could be in a situation where you would have to help with saving someone's life. An easy and simple
Way of having a
understanding of CPR. I like the timer as well 👍
