New medical ID card could save your life

What would happen if you were rushed into hospital in an emergency? How would you be treated if you had specific medical conditions or allergies that you could not communicate to the medical staff?

 
PRLog - Mar. 12, 2014 - BOLTON, U.K. -- Imagine you are involved in a serious car accident in the street. You are rushed to hospital but because you’re concussed you can’t answer the medics’ questions so they don’t know the best treatment for you, delaying your recovery and possibly worsening your condition.

This scenario can be resolved with the new 999 medical card.

999card is a new, updated alternative to traditional medical ID bands. Not only does it show the user’s allergies and or conditions on the front of the card but as it is a USB stick in the size and shape of a credit card it contains software that holds the user’s full medical information and history.

It can be carried conveniently in your purse or wallet. If it needs to be accessed by medical professionals in case of emergency all the information is summarised in a pdf or html file that any computer can view without the need for specific software.

After emergency admission to hospital it can take up to 3 working days to obtain a patient’s medical information. 999card will hold it all including scans of doctor’s letters and prescriptions if required. It shows next of kin information, allergies and medical conditions, surgeries, doctor’s details as well as lifestyle and family history. It can be updated at any time by the user and no outside agency will hold your private medical information.

It is of great use to many different groups of people from those with specific allergies or medical conditions to groups such as motorcyclists, extreme sports or even vulnerable family members. This really is the card that could save your life.
