If I said to you SOS Poison would you know what I meant? The people in the Netherlands would as it is a printed book that has been established, updated, and made available to them for over 25 years. It has now been made available to smartphones and can be downloaded in the iPhone and Android marketplace.
This iPhone app or Android app whichever you prefer provides comprehensive details on hazardous and poisonous plants that are commonly found around houses that adults and children may become in contact with. The app provides step-by-step instructions as to what you should do should if you accidently ingest some of the poisons in the database.
We all know what kids are like, if they can find something and touch something, then they will also try and put it in the mouth. This is always a continuous worry for parents and this app aims to relieve parents worries by providing information that will help them should a child eat something that is poisonous. If your child does swallow something they should not have and they look fine you should still get them checked out by a doctor ensuring you give details of exactly what was consumed and how much rather than just relying on this app.
Small accidents such as swallowing a plant leaf may seem harmless enough, however it could have dangerous consequences if that plant is indeed poisonous, this is why you need the app. Firstly, you need to identify what the plant is. The SOS Poison app allows you to provide immediate identification of poisonous plants with details and pictures of typical poisonous plants. Secondly, you need to know what immediate action should be taken. This app provides you with those details all for just $4.99. Check out the iTunes or the Android marketplace for downloads.
