Medical ID's
Hi all,

Don't forget how important it is to have an up-to-date medical card in your wallet or purse for emergencies.  There is a great template at this website that allows you to TYPE your information instead of hand writing it on those little cards.

This is a commercial website that also has some unusual med id jewelry but you don't have to buy anything to use the id card template.

Be well and be prepared, Lulu

Here's another site that can do orders for US, Canada, UK and Australia... I picked up this form at our local heart hospital when I was there a while back.  They include MS as one of the standard reasons to wear a med id.  ANDthey have a fairly good list of symptoms and dx's that can jog your memory, such asthma or vision impaired.

And they make them in 14kt gold if you want to be really special! :-)

Laura - Do the cardiologists recommend that you carry a copy of your last EKG?

Actually they offer this service of a microchip (for purchase of course) that contains all of my medical records, including my EKG's.... The AHA and the Cardio's recommend personal health records that are accessible from anywhere on line.
