You have your standard first aid kit with bandages, gauze, and tape. Now, there's a new voice in first aid, it's the Intelligent First Aid Kit and it literally talks you through a crisis.
Folks at the work opportunity center in Monmouth County, New Jersey are at the forefront of this radical change in first aid. Instead of relying on memory, or a first aid manual, the kit coaches you through the first minutes of an emergency. Developed by a former Navy Hospital corpsman, each pack contains items you need to handle various injuries or emergencies in each category like breathing, bleeding, or shock.
The Intelligent First Aid Kit speaks in English but it will be available in other languages soon. Right now, the kit is only available online and costs about $130.
