Emergency Medical Information Card

In addition to wearing identification and emergency contact information, I also carry a laminated Emergency Medical Information Card on me. It has all the important medical information that emergency medical personnel might need to know about me in a medical emergency including:

– Identification and date of birth

– Emergency contacts

– Heath insurance provider

– Allergies

– Medical conditions

– Medications (prescriptions and over-the-counter)

– Immunizations

– And the contact information for family physician

While I have used my emergency medical information card in medical emergencies, I also find it useful for routine doctor visits where they ask me the same information.
