Medical Information Kit
Living with ALS not only impacts a person’s daily living, but also factors into the appropriate medical treatment in an emergency situation or hospital stay. When providing care, health professionals and emergency personnel, like paramedics, will have many questions about a person’s medical condition. In these stressful situations, it is often helpful to have an organized set of information, which can help inform medical providers about specific issues and considerations.
We are in the process of developing printed materials to make organizing your health care information easier and more accessible. They may be used as a packet or as individual pages, based on individual preference and need.
These materials are being developed to include those fundamentally important key considerations in an emergency situation. It can be printed and folded to fit easily in a wallet, pocket, car glove compartment etc.
