Clever First Aid Blanket That Helps To Save Lives

Everybody should know basic First Aid, but few people actually do. Sure we’ve all seen people being resuscitated in movies, but would you actually know what to do in real life? Well, while this First Aid Blanket won’t compensate for proper First Aid training, it might still help you to save somebody’s life.

Designed by Zhejiang University, China, the blanket, which won the prestigious Red Dot Award for conceptual design in 2014, is specifically designed to assist in cases of drowning. From how to unblock airways and check for circulation to how to correctly administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), it’s full of useful information that even a person without knowledge of First Aid can follow. The instructions are clearly printed alongside simple diagrams to help you provide basic assistance to somebody in need until paramedics arrive on the scene.

Quite an interesting concept. Would be great to see if it actually proves helpful or would rather confuse people. But definitely worth a try.

its great for those with no experience on First Aid, but it can also waste time when in need of life and death situations.

I agree. I work in a hospital, I would NOT want anyone who didn't know First Aid to be practicing on me for their first time. You can do more damage than good if you don't know what you're doing.

Hey Negative Nelly's don't you all think that trying to do SOMETHING is better than doing nothing? A: No one would be "practicing" on me they are trying to save my life and B: Good Samaritan laws prevent a person from being sued for just this reason! I mean come on would you want someone to stand there and watch you or someone you love die because they might get sued?
