With so many of your readers relying on iPhones, I wanted to share with you some information about an iPhone App from LegalZoom and Donate Life America that could help save lives.
The ICE App is a FREE App that provides first responders – paramedics, firefighters, police officers, emergency room personnel, doctors and nurses – with access to critical information that can potentially save a life in the event of an emergency. Information stored on the iPhone through ICE App includes:
· The patient’s name, photograph, date of birth, height and weight
· Emergency contact names and numbers
· Medical conditions
· Blood type
· Food allergies
· Medication allergies
· Current medications
· The patient’s organ donation preference
While I certainly hope you never find yourself in this position where the App would be crucial to saving your life, it’s important that you are prepared in case the unthinkable happens.
The free ICE App can be found in the iPhone Apps Store by searching for “ice-app,” or you can visit the following Web site:http://www.ice-app.net/.
