The Vial of Life is Free
because it should be!
Put one in your wallet, in your glove compartment, and especially on your refrigerator door- even put one in your child’s pocket.
May I speak to you from my heart?
People find themselves in emergencies that make it difficult to think straight.
At these times, all emergency personnel who are trying to help you need to know many things about you – especially if you have a complex medical history.
American Senior Safety Agency medical alert systems knows how important this information is and has graciously donated over 4 million decals nationwide. It is with their help that this program is able to continue.
They would love to know:
Who you are… what medications you are using… what illnesses you have… who is your emergency contact person… what is your normal blood pressure… are you wearing hearing or seeing devices… do you speak English… and, if not, what language do you speak?
Emergency personnel would love to know what your last EKG looked like. This gives them critical information on any current heart event you may be having. A good example of the value of a copy of your EKG is me. I have what is known as an inverted T wave. Don’t ask me what it means, I don’t know. For me this is normal and I’m fine. However, if I were not able to speak for myself and tell the medical personnel that I have a weird T wave… they would have great concern over nothing. They would most likely treat me, by lack of knowledge, incorrectly.
When you get to the hospital… they want to know more. What insurance do you have, etc.
These are very annoying questions when you don’t feel well, and sometimes you may not recall the answers because of your condition.
The Vial of Life speaks for you when you can’t speak or don’t feel well.
Protect yourself, and all of your family members… all it will cost you is a little time.
And it could save your life!
