Free CPR Training App Offered

ZOLL Medical Corp. is offering its popular Pocket CPR for iPhone free during February in recognition of American Heart Month.

ZOLL Medical Corp. is offering its PocketCPR® training app for iPhones as a free download from the Apple iTunes App Store during February in recognition of the American Heart Association's American Heart Month. The company said the offering "is a training app only and can be used in all CPR training programs or for individual practice at any time." While it is useful to professional or lay rescuers dealing with a sudden cardiac arrest incident, PocketCPR® for iPhone is not cleared by the FDA for rescue use.

"Response to the Pocket CPR for iPhone app has been tremendous. Since we first introduced it last November, we've had over 35,000 downloads from more than 60 countries," said Mark Totman, president of Bio-Detek Inc., a ZOLL subsidiary based in Pawtucket, R.I. Bio-Detek developed the app.

The app covers every stage of CPR, then uses Real CPR Help®, the technology used in ZOLL defibrillators, to give feedback on whether or not the student is compressing to the right depth at the correct rate. Providing visual and audio instructions and feedback, it reinforces the AHA and International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (AHA/ILCOR) recommendations on CPR, the company says.

To download it, users of an iPhone or iPod Touch should enter the App Store from their device (or via iTunes on their computer) using PocketCPR as the search term. When the PocketCPR for iPhone icons appears, click the Buy App icon to download the training tool. Or click the initial icon to access the description page.
