Man Treats Haiti Earthquake Wounds Using IPhone App

Man Treats Haiti Earthquake Wounds Using IPhone App
An iPhone app has been used to treat the wounds of a man in the Haiti earthquake.

The Today Show covered the story of Dan Woolley who used a iPhone first-aid app to treat a compound fracture of his leg and a cut on his head.

The iPhone first-aid app Woolley had downloaded showed him how to fashion a bandage and tourniquet for his leg and to stop the bleeding from his head wound. The app also warned him not to fall asleep if he felt he was going into shock, so he set his iPhone's alarm clock to go off every 20 minutes.

Woolley was trapped for 65 hours in an elevator shaft following the Haiti earthquake. He was in Haiti working for Compassion International, a mission organisation, making a film about the impact of poverty on the people of Haiti.
