    If you are unconcious what information do you have on you to help the medics?

    There is a new program called ICE, In Case of Emergency, it is a number programed into a cell phone that the medical people can use to contact whoever. Parents, spouse, grandparents or trusted friend, if there is an emergency.
    I think this would be good for kids.

    Med-alert tags, a 'dogtag', or bracelet that contains medical conditions such as epilepsy, diabetic, pacemakers ect. some also have a phone # to call for more info, can also list med types. A nice system that has been around a long time.

    A card carried in the wallet by your ID would also help although it is not looked for as much as the Med-alert tag. Blood type and an ICE # might be good too.

    The listing of current meds and allergies to meds can save a life. Some people are allergic to lidocaine, Iodine, various other drugs.

    just a little thing I was thinking about today

    Huh??? Why wait Tango, they have been in use on livestock for many years! For livestock its just I.D., but you could have anything programed onto one. "The size of a grain of rice."

    Worries us, huh Tango3. I will put some info on my pda or phone. Being allergic to morphine, I don't want that for sure. Docs gave me some one time, and it just about did me in. No chip for me thank you.

    Ya, I did the ICE thing on my Cell phone a while back. I've also got a small piece of paper taped to the back of my drivers license with contact information.

    Fortunately for me, no medical allergies, only food (dang shellfish :( )
