BehindTheMedspeak: Interactive Talking First Aid Guide


When I espied this puppy I got all excited, figuring an Interactive Talking Anesthesia Emergency Guide would be coming soon.

Then I got to thinking about it a little and realized that no robot handheld could ever replicate the sweat pouring down the small of your back as the O2 sat monitor beep gets lower and lower pitched and the patient's face turns first pale then gray, edging ever closer to cyanotic blue....

Besides, there's no panic button.

From the website:

    Interactive Talking First Aid Guide

    Do you know what to do in a medical emergency?

    This handheld guide gives you immediate access to critical emergency instructions at the touch of a button.

    Essential for the new mom or dad, this handheld interactive talking first aid guide prompts you with lighted keys and gives you easy-to-follow, step-by-step verbal instructions delivered in a clear, calm voice.

    With eight first aid categories and over 30 interactive recordings for infant, child, and adult first aid issues, it ensures you’ll always have immediate access to the information you need.

    Potentially life-saving in case of an emergency and also a great way to learn how to handle emergencies before they happen.

    It’s easy to use and interactive.

    Open it and it turns on automatically.

    Provides audible and visual warnings in case of low battery.

    Instructions can be spoken in English or Spanish.
