A new version of the iResus app released for healthcare professionals.
In conjunction with the 2015 Guidelines, we have developed a new version of the popular iResus app. The original app created in 2010, was an immediate success amongst healthcare professionals looking to supplement their learning and have immediate access to the Resuscitation Council (UK) life support algorithms.
‘When we launched the original app in 2010 it filled a gap and enabled healthcare professionals to rapidly access all the resuscitation algorithms on their phone. It was clear that once the 2010 app was made unavailable a replacement was needed and we’re delighted to announce the new iResus app’ explains Dr Jasmeet Soar, consultant in anaesthetics and intensive care medicine at Southmead Hospital, Bristol, and the Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines 2015 lead.
The main function of this free app is to act as a support tool and a learning supplement for healthcare professionals once they have taken a Resuscitation Council (UK) life support course.
The new and updated iResus can be downloaded on a phone or tablet from the Apple App Store and Google Play. Once downloaded, iResus can function without the need for an internet connection. All algorithms used in the Resuscitation Council (UK) life support courses can be accessed using the app. Should there be any updates to the algorithms the update function enables users to download the latest versions immediately.
The app has been produced in collaboration with Cranworth Medical – a specialist mobile app developer for the health sector.
If you have any questions concerning technical issues or support with the app, please contact us and we will aim to respond within 5 working days. Please note that currently, the app is not available for Windows phone operating system.
