Top 10 Emergency apps

Emergency apps can be divided into two categories: applications that store medical information and applications instructing how to provide first aid. As a rule, these are mobile applications, because emergency situations can happen anywhere, and the application must be in the pocket at this moment.

The first category - apps that store important emergency information that ambulance physicians or rescuers may need to provide you the proper first aid and start the proper treatment. For example, if you have allergies or other contraindications, or have a chronic illness and take certain medications - all this information is very important for a doctor who sees you at first time. In addition, these applications contain information about your medical insurance policy and emergency contacts, who need to know about the incident, for example, your family or doctor.

The second category - apps that quickly show you what to do in emergency situation: how to do CPR, what to do with bleeding, loss of consciousness, poisoning, etc. The ordinary person (not doctor) can't remember all these instructions so it's good to have this information on the phone.
