SOS Poison Smartphone app Saves Lives

The new SOS Poison app for iPhones will assist customers to save lives. The SOS Poison application for smartphones contains an alphabetic list with 190 toxic substances. For each substance, there is an instruction on what to do if a child has ingested it. In addition, the app also contains a list of more than 60 toxic plants. Every plant has a clear photo next to it, so that users can immediately recognise which plant a child has eaten from. The app also provides advice on ticks, snakes, jellyfish, bees or wasps and there is a separate chapter with prevention tips and other relevant information.

This app is of course intended for parents, but is certainly also useful for teachers, playschool teachers, sports instructors and others who deal with children,” said publisher Don Veldkamp. An important advantage of the app is the ease with which new advice or altered insights can be implemented. We can therefore continuously keep the app up-to-date.”

The SOS Poison app is a publication by the Dutch Foundation ‘Ticket to Prevent’. The foundation works closely together with experts from the Dutch Red Cross, The Orange Cross, and ‘Consumer and Safety’, the Dutch consumer safety watchdog. 

If you buy the SOS Poison app, the latest updated version is always available for free, via the app store. 

The SOS Poison app is available in English, German, Dutch, and French, Spanish and recently in Russian. The company is currently busily translating the SOS Poison app, and making it available in the app stores of other European countries.
