Be safe, prepared and informed when a medical emergency strikes with the American Red Cross’s S.O.S. App for Android.
The American Red Cross has teamed up with Dr. Oz and Sharecare to create the ultimate emergency care application. S.O.S. provides step-by-step instructions on dealing with a variety of emergencies, including choking, broken bones, strokes, allergic reactions and more. Not sure what the problem is? We’ll help you figure that out, too.
This free app includes:
- An expansive Emergency Guide for easy access to emergency care information.
- A questionnaire to help you determine an emergency’s severity and proper treatment.
- Dozens of videos, narrated by Dr. Oz, to coach you through emergency protocols. Particularly complex techniques, such as unconscious choking and CPR also include an audio and visual counter for real-time CPR compressions.
- Quick Care factoids to help you stay ahead of the curve before an emergency strikes. These range from knowing which foods can help motion sickness to the medical use for kitty litter.
- Easy access to 9-1-1. If you’re not in the US, we’ve got you covered – the app will determine what country you’re in and dial the appropriate emergency number.
- Alerts from the Red Cross to make it easy to help out in the case of a major disaster.
Emergency care protocols were developed and reviewed by prestigious medical and educational panels from both the American Red Cross and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).

This app is fantastic! Will be good to have to walk through emergencies (when 9-1-1 isn't an option, or can't wait for help). But also is a great resource to wade through while sitting on a plane/train/automobile to be educated and prepared BEFORE an emergency arises!

This app is very useful with good information. Its a good way to prepare yourself for many different life-threatening situations or injuries. The animations are very helpful!

You should be training every 2 years, if you have a CPR Certificate, then this is like a refreshing up course. I'ts like the course. Follow the steps.

This is great for the average joe on the street, but it'd bed nice to have a separate mode for those that are trained a could use a little refresher.

Somewhat outdated. The new cpr procedure for infants is two rescue breaths then chest compressions.
