Poison Center Help iPhone app

Poison Help iPhone app

This Poison Help iPhone application will connect users with their local poison center with just the click of a button. By clicking on the Poison Help logo, users will have free, confidential access to a medical expert who can answer questions about poisons or help users treat a poison exposure. During an emergency, you don’t need to scramble to find the number for your poison center. Be ready! Users will also receive tips on how to prevent a poisoning. Poison centers are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year, and are free and confidential. Don’t take a chance, call.
