Wilderness First Aid Made Easy

This app equals a two-day, sixteen-hour Wilderness First Aid course in your hands. You have access to over 50 video presentations and demonstrations and easy-to-understand diagrams that walk you step-by-step through the first aid care process.

This app guides you through the primary assessment where you identify and treat life-threatening injuries that can kill a patient within the first few minutes of a medical emergency. In the secondary assessment, this app will assist you in identifying illness and injuries and instruct you on how to treat the illnesses and injuries while transporting the patient to definitive medical care.

You have access to the lectures, presentations, demonstrations, and handouts found in a traditional, sixteen-hour Wilderness First Aid Certification course. On each screen of this app, you will find QR Codes and tapping on these codes will display a webpage where you will be able to view a presentation or demonstration. Each page is explained, step-by-step in using concise, to-the-point video presentations that will deepen your knowledge by illustrating the application of Wilderness First Aid concepts.
The procedures and protocols in this app are based on the most current recommendations of responsible wilderness medical sources. Thousands of pages of Wilderness First Aid education text are distilled into less than 50 decision algorithms.
