Hi all,

Red Cross launches world first - CPR instructions, direct to your mobile. 
29 June 2008: The Red Cross today launches a world first in first aid -
CPR instructions downloaded to a mobile phone, at the touch of a button..

'This groundbreaking technology will literally put the ability to save a 
life in the hands of all Australians with a mobile phone' says Mr 
Tickner 'and while we know there is no substitute for an approved First 
Aid course, it will serve as a crucial prompt should the time arise when 
people are required to give CPR.'

The technology is a world first, and has been developed in conjunction 
with Multi-Ed medical, a Tasmanian medical education company. 

The launch will also be attended by Sherrie McDonald, whose child Abby was 
saved by a neighbour who knew First Aid. Sherrie believes 'this technology 
means that you can have a reminder of how to perform CPR properly, in your 
hands, all the time. It's a fantastic piece of information for people to 
have on their mobiles.'

To download the animation to your mobile phone: 
Visit the First Aid page on the website or text 'CPR' to 19 951 515.
