Flashing First Aid
Not only are memory sticks convenient but as medical flash drives they can actually save your life! Especially in an emergency – where access to your medical ID and record is crucial – they come in as smooth and fast operators. They can store your allergies, conditions and prescriptions that you’re on or shouldn’t take. Also, they can include your medical insurance and contact information of your friends and relatives. So basically, a medical memory stick is the upgraded version of a medi-tag and can really make life easier for you and the emergency personnel. Or other first responders!
USB medical alerts can be especially vital for the elder, disabled or handicapped. If you have problems remembering your medical history or just don’t want to worry about memorizing, it sure is great to still be able to provide your live saving information. Then think of a situation where you’re traveling or aren’t able to communicate due to unconsciousness or some other reason. If one needs to be rushed to a hospital an emergency flash drive can optimize patient care and by the same token it might save you the trip.
One thing a USB medical alert can’t do however is rescue your computer. I’m afraid that’s a different emergency that requires different measures. That type of virus infection may still be alleviated with a memory stick however, albeit a more regular one. How? Simply by backing up your data or running an anti-virus program from it.
Well, hoping that you place more emphasis on a human life though it’s definitely worth considering to combine your medical flash drive with a memory stick lanyard or USB bracelet. This could ensure maximum first aid. And not just for your own personal health and safety but for your pet’s too…
