Download the AHA's First Aid iPhone App - It's Already Saving Lives!

The American Heart Association's Pocket First Aid & CPR application includes the most up-to-date emergency information from the American Heart Association. From the application, you're able to review first aid procedures anytime and anywhere from your home, in your car, in an elevator shaft after an earthquake in Haiti...

Dan Woolley, an American aid worker was trapped in the ruins of the Hotel Montana in Port-au-Prince after the January 12 earthquake in Haiti. Using the American Heart Associations Pocket First Aid & CPR application, he followed instructions on his cell phone to treat himself for bleeding and shock.

The application on his iPhone is filled with information about first aid and CPR from the American Heart Association. "So I knew I wasn't making mistakes," Woolley said. "That gave me confidence to treat my wounds properly."
