Close your eyes and picture it - you’ve just been in an accident, you’ve been rendered unconscious, and there’s no way that the EMT who just arrived at the scene could possibly know about the prescription drugs in your system. And, unknowingly, that injection he’s about to give you could be a lethal one.
It happens far too often, information that is vital to your health and survival isn’t available when needed. But to carry with you all of the information that’s needed in case of emergency would require dragging a small filing cabinet. At least that’s how it used to be.
Now all you need is your “iD”. Identification Devices LLC has introduced iD - a small, portable electronic identification device that offers emergency response personnel (Police, Fire Rescue, EMTs) information such as your name, emergency contacts, a list of your current health conditions, medications, medical history, blood type, and allergies, all of your critical-care information, so you can be properly treated at the scene of an accident. In addition, the device can also contain a recent photo, and other medical documents such as Living Wills and Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders.
