The American Red Cross, Sharecare, and Dr. Oz have teamed up to create the “S.O.S. by the American Red Cross” app, available for free exclusively on Android devices. S.O.S. puts emergency life-saving techniques at your fingertips, with a step-by-step “victim assessment” that will identify the distress and walk you through techniques on how to alleviate 50 of the most common emergency conditions. These protocol walk-throughs feature 3-D animations and detailed instructions on the proper response techniques. Additionally, 30 of these protocols are demonstrated by Dr. Oz himself in clear, easy-to-follow videos. Other tools include audio and visual counters for CPR compressions and 911 dialing with in-call location mapping. Hopefully you’ll never have to use S.O.S., but in the case of an emergency, it’s always best to be prepared. Hit the break to grab the free download from the Android Market.
