The VIAL FOR LIFE form allows you to list contact information, insurance information, pertinent past medical history, current medical conditions (acute and/or chronic), current medications, allergies to (medications, foods, environmental, chemicals, etc.) and any other important information. By having this information prepared and organized together prior to any emergency response you can alleviate the added stress of trying to find or remember vital information during a medical emergency. Additionally, this information can provide valuable clues to allow a more focused assessment and subsequent treatment and transport decisions. Once you have completed the form, store it somewhere it can be easily accessed and found (on the refrigerator, by the phone, etc.). You can also make a copy to carry in your wallet or purse in case you have a medical emergency away from home.
