This following is a post that I put up on the Cardiovascular Forum. I decided to place it here as well, especially for those of you (me) that have allergies to medications!! Hugs, Teri
There was another post where someone mentioned that they carried all their medical information with them in their car!
That's a great idea!!
I, myself was asked several years ago by an emergency room tech. and an EMT to please make a copy of all the following things to make it easier for them to be able to do their jobs and help save my life.
Next of Kin and their Number
All Doctor's names and phone numbers
List all Surgeries
List all Diagnoses
Medications that you are currently taking, including PRN or as needed med.'s such as "Tylenol", or an inhalor that you use only occasionally.
I carry this with me in my purse at all times and I keep the info on my computer (saved), so I can change/or alter things as they occur.
I hope this helps someone else out!!
