Former soldier turned PhD student creates app for burn victims
Life saving app developed

A new application for the iPhone, which holds a great potential to save the lives of severe burn victims, has been developed by a current PhD University student who is also a former solider.

The app, which quickly assesses the level of burns through a touch-screen model, calculates the correct amount of fluids that should be administered to someone after burn injuries occur. This is a vital stage in influencing the chances of survival of a burn victim. Typically this calculation is carried out by a doctor by hand, but this app has already been shown to reduce errors made by this previous pen and paper method by a third.
