There are situations wherein people are in need of medical aid, but they are not in a position to speak up. Some examples of some problems which can land people into such emergency and helpless situations are seizure disorder (epilepsy), cardiac problem, diabetes, allergic reactions to many items like some food items, some external materials like natural rubber, etc.
Obviously the patient cannot speak up for himself or herself in such situations, and if there is nobody on hand who knows that person, the EMT or EMS has to grope and experiment to find the problem. On the other hand, in such situations, if information is available to the medical people about a preexisting medical problem of the patient, it can be really useful to save time required to investigate and thereby give the medical aid faster and save the life of the person.
Wearing medial information bracelets is one way of carrying such medical information about oneself. To complement this information if a list of medicines regularly taken by a person is carried by him along with his ID, this will also help in providing very valuable information to the medical team.
In some rare situations, some medicines react with others and become dangerous to the human body instead of helping it. So, deciding a medicine which will not result in an adverse situation like this is important; this can be done only if the medicines to which the person is known to be allergic or the medicines which the person is already regularly taking as a treatment for an existing medical problem are known.
