*When you are on vacation and not near your regular physician.
*Your family member (with Alzheimer's) is at a day program and you are not with them. (Alzheimers Care)
*Child with bee sting allergy is at park with friends and gets stung.

*Cerebral Palsey patient is rushed to hospital without caregiver.
*Diabetic child at camp passes out from high blood sugar.
*Child with severe food allergies spends the night with friends.
*In accident while traveling and you are without your medical records.
*Coronary heart disease
*You or family member on blood thinners has another heart attack and (emergency personnel need to know this so they do not to give too much medication).
*Person with Epilepsy is around those who do not know the symptoms.
Mentally challenged loved one who is not able to be with you 24 hours a day.
*Shunts for dialysis patients, warn of incapability of blood pressure/injections in that arm.
*Who to contact for you if needed in any emergency situation and you are away from home.
Think about it, how would anyone know what medical conditions/allergies you have to begin to treat you. With Medical Alert ID medical personel have a head start, while you and your family know that you have a better chance now that you wear your medical id.
Hopefully now your are ready to get your Medical Alert ID.
