App review: CitizenAID

CitizenAID is a simple-to-use app teaching aid on how to provide care in mass casualty situations, including shootings, knife attacks, and bomb incidents.

The authors are well known and respected specialists in trauma care and disaster management.

This app has the potential to help save lives and everyone should download it. My only suggestion is for the resuscitation page to include the ratio of chest compressions
