St John New Zealand has just released an official app on the Windows Phone Store. The charity operates in multiple countries, including the UK where a Wales focused app is already available. Much like its Welsh counterpart, this new app aims to teach Windows Phone consumers on how to provide vital CPR to friends, family and others.
Covering 90 percent of the population in New Zealand, it's a lifeline service offering first aid training and ambulance services where required. The apps teach life-saving skills of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), providing invaluable knowledge just in case it's needed. Here are some features of the app:
- Adult, Child and Infant CPR tutorials
- Beeping and vibrating CPR Timing Assist to help you with consistent chest compressions
- Instructions can be spoken by your phone.
- Set up your own emergency services phone number – useful when travelling abroad
- CPR videos from Dr Tony Smith, Medical Director at St John New Zealand
Content available in the app is of high quality with both visual and audio walkthroughs covering the CPR tutorials. The app also allows users to donate directly to the charity, as well as contact the emergency line. We recommend you check the app out if you're interested in learning first aid. Best of all, it's free.
Thanks, Sarang, for the heads up!
