Basic Life Support Emergency Guidance App

An app detailing the basics of life support. How to perform some of the most basic life saving techniques should you have no option but to use them e.g. Friend/Family member falls seriously ill up a mountain. Having done BLS training it quickly became apparent to me that there was no way I'd remember how many chest compressions are required vs breaths for an adult/child/baby, etc. My solution?

Picture prompts

A directory of simple diagrams and pictures that could be shared with patients or carers when explaining anatomy, procedures or treatments.

A&E Game

A game depicting the stresses of A&E. I'm thinking something along the lines of "Diner Dash" where patients who come in have to dealt with as necessary e.g. send for x-ray, blood tests, clean bed, etc. At the end of each level (more patients in shorter time or different time of day for levels) are bonus questions along the lines "Was this person right to come to A&E?"
