Did you know your iPhone can be a valuable asset if you are ever injured or incapacitated?  Apple has the ability to create a Medical ID on your iPhone.  This information can be accessed even if the phone is locked, and will save emergency responders valuable time in treating your injuries.

How to do it:

Open the Health App and stay on the summary page

iPhone Medical ID tip

Click on your logo in the upper right (it’s the round picture)

This takes you to your profile.  From here you want to select Medical ID

Once you select this you can enter in your blood type, height, weight, medical conditions or notes, medications, blood type, organ donor status, primary language, emergency contacts.

Make sure to select “show when locked” and “share during emergency call”.
