WASHINGTON — Don't know how to perform CPR? Now, there's an iPhone app for that, too.
The American Heart Association has created its first application for the iPhone. It provides video and detailed instructions on how to perform first aid for cardiac arrest, seizures and other medical emergencies.
It's a good idea to study up on basic first aid before it's ever necessary to use it, heart association spokeswoman Julia Starzyk said. The iPhone app should be more of a quick reference, she said.
"Pocket First Aid and CPR," which sells for $3.99, also allows users to store medical information such as medications they take and allergies.
