Our website developers have been hard at work creating new features for our Virtual Nurse skill. It is now more useful than ever before and can provide you with more potentially life-saving information. Alongside this, we’ve added Virtual Nurse to both Amazon’s Alexa & Google’s Assistant.
What is Virtual Nurse
Virtual Nurse was originally developed for Amazon Alexa enabled devices in order to provide basic CPR instructions to the end users. After continual development Virtual Nurse can now provide medical advice for a range of different topics from chickenpox right through to broken bones and bleeding. It can be downloaded for free onto any Alexa enabled device, including the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and Amazon Fire TV. As well as this, Virtual Nurse can be downloaded onto Google Assistant. This means you can now use Virtual Nurse through Google Home and many other Google Assistant enabled devices.
Once installed the user can activate the skill / app by asking a phrase such as “Alexa, ask Virtual Nurse how to perform CPR” or for those using Virtual Nurse on Google Assistant, “OK Google, ask Virtual Nurse about heart attacks”. Virtual Nurse will then reply with information about the specific subject, and the steps you should take to treat the problem.
In addition to the above, the Virtual Nurse can also give you dynamic advice depending on the age of the victim or the type of injury. For example, you can ask for CPR advice for a child or an adult. Or how to treat minor or heavy bleeding.
In addition to Alexa, Virtual Nurse is now available for Google Assistant on any Android smartphone or Google Home device.
You can download the app from the Google Assistant app store. Simply ask Google to open Virtual Nurse to get started.
