You can not predict the future, but you can prepare for it. If you have injured yourself in a car accident, suffer an unpleasant fall, fall down a cliff, get a seizure, or get hit by lightning, it's always good to bring up-to-date information about your health, if possible. Do not speak for yourself. A physical ID card or medical badge bracelet can provide this information, as well as your iPhone.
For the secret of this feature, see Apple's Health app in iOS 12, a great tool to track exercise statistics and nutritional data, sleep activity, and more. In the health app, you can set up a "medical ID" on the screen that consists of your key health information that can help strangers to first responders, nurses, doctors and nurses, as well as colleagues, family, friends, and even others.
: Create Your Medical Emergency ID
Although the feature has been available in the health app since iOS 8, you should make sure that you are running the latest version of iOS your iPhone necessary. Then tap the medical ID tab in the bottom right corner of the Health app. On the following page, tap Create Medical ID.
Step 2: Add health information to help with emergencies
When the editor is open, you enter information such as your full name, date of birth, illness, allergies, medications and blood type – anything that is relevant to your health. Take everything that could help you save your life or make your medical treatment smoother in an unforeseen health situation.
For example, if you find yourself in an unusually fast heart rate ambulance and get tired, you can give yourself Phenergan to treat nausea. If you are allergic and can not speak, you may experience idiosyncratic reactions that affect your mental and physical abilities. This can complicate the whole reason why you are there. Adding a reaction or allergy can reduce the likelihood of it.
Step 3: Choose Your Emergency Contacts
Beyond Your Health Information You can even tap "Add an emergency contact" to do just that. Select a contact from the list and the best phone number, and then establish your relationship with that contact. If you end up in a hospital or someone finds you confused, you can contact your emergency contact to notify him or to find out what he should do.
Before you tap Done to complete your medical ID, you must click above On this page, select "Show on Block" under Emergency Access . In this way, anyone who needs access to your information can access your medical ID via the lock screen of your iPhone (see next section).
None of the information entered in the "Medical ID" section is included in the Health Data tab in Apple Health or shared with other third-party or Apple-powered apps.
If you lock your iPhone and then re-enable it, you will find it Your new medical ID is not on the lock screen. So what is there?
Apple does not place Medical IDs directly on the lock screen in iOS. Instead, find your ID on the emergency screen of the lock screen. Go to the Passcode screen, tap Emergency, then tap Medical ID. Your new medical ID will be displayed with all the information you have saved.
Medical ID is useful if you can move and think clearly, but for some reason can not speak. Just pull up the medical ID and show it to the person who treats you. However, this medical ID is of great benefit to other people.
If you are unconscious, misleading, mentally unstable or otherwise incapacitated, the person who treats you or tries to find information about you (such as a contact) may leak that data. However, they may not know that they can do this, and they can only do so if you are helping spread the word.
If you need to delete the medical ID for anyone No matter if someone is borrowing your iPhone, or if it is your other significant one – or whatever the case may be – Open the tab "Medical ID" in "Health". Touch "Edit" and then "Delete Medical ID" at the bottom of the page. Confirm with "Delete medical ID" in the popup.
