Seems like a great tool for those times when you need to look up first-aid info, but have your hands full. Like when you've cut your finger, or when you're trying to help someone else with an injury. Also a fun way to learn about first aid in general. I asked it a few "practice questions" that I thought might be the sort of thing I would ask about for real some day. The answers I got seemed helpful.
I cut my finger last night, and I asked Alexa for first aid help. This is before I discovered and enabledthe Mayo Clinic first aid app. I think there should be a way to just say "OPEN FIRST AID" without mentioning Mayo Clinic because in panic situations, people are not going to remember all of that. I look forward to using this app in the future, but I hope Alexa/Amazon and Mayo Clinic can maybe streamline the mouthful of words when someone is profusely bleeding and scared.
this skill was really helpfull when my kid had bruises. thought its not a physician, its a good neighbour who can cool down when you are in confused about first aid. meanwhile, now learning multiple first aid things from this skill. +1 for the creators.

Glad this reputable source of information is now available directly in our house via voice command. It's was a bit challenging to get Alexa to open the skill, but once I figured that out it was helpful.
