Everybody should have a Vial of Life form filled out. The Vial of Life is a smart way to have your medical information on hand just in case of an emergency. Seniors need this because of their constant medical changes and medications… It’s the right thing to do. Put one in your wallet, in your glove compartment, and especially on your refrigerator door- even put one in your child’s pocket.
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.
Here, at The Vial of Life, we know how important this information is and make it easy for anyone to order a life-saving kit and receive it in just a few days.
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 and order The Vial of Life today.
