Emergency Medical Information
Emergency Medical Information is essential for life saving procedures in any emergency situation.
In the time immediately following a medical emergency, called "the Golden Hour" it is essential for emergency personnel to have your pertinent medical information available - to save your life.
100's of thousands of people die each year due to the lack of critical medical information that must be available to emergency personnel (first responders and doctors).
Having your medical information available will help you in the event of an emergency. Mandatory information includes: your current medical condition or conditions, current medication, allergies, adverse drug reactions, blood group and other relevant information, to be accessed by emergency medical personnel when necessary. In case of emergency, your contact details are required so that medical personnel can contact your next of kin or who ever you indicate.
Be prepared. Don't be left with permanent disabilities or worse because you did not have pertinent medical information available.
