    This Important iPhone Tip Could Save Your Life In An Emergency

    We didn’t know about this… How about you? Did you know that there is a special iPhone feature that can save your life during an emergency??? Yep. Julia Thompson, a hospital employee, posted about it on social media recently and we thought it was a great thing to share. It could save your life. Or the life or someone you love… Here’s what she says:

    “Working in a public hospital I appreciate many patients come in and we have had no way of knowing who they are or how to contact their next of kin. And their phones are locked! But many people don’t realise that you and patients can set up something called a ‘Medical ID’ on your iPhone if you have the health app (free with phone). This information can be accessed even while the phone is locked by clicking on the emergency options and can display things like name, DOB, emergency contacts, medical conditions and even blood type and donor status. You can even add notes.”

    “It can be managed by clicking on the little ‘Health’ app that comes default on the phone (heart icon and then in the app go to the little star shape with medical ID) and given everyone I have spoken to today has never heard of it it seemed like a social media share kind of moment! But don’t simply share it – update yours also!”

    It’s an app and it’s called ‘Health’. Here’s what it looks like:

    You can enter blood type, any allergies/reactions, next of kin info, medications you are taking or any existing medical conditions that hospital staff might need to know about.

    The info will even be accessible by medical staff even if your phone is locked.
