On certain smartphones, just enter the contact list and right at the beginning, you have your own contact. Clicking on it appears a list of information and the option of registering medical and emergency information.
It is possible to register information such as, for example, any allergies you have, medications you are taking, blood type or other data that are important for a doctor to analyze your health status.
It is convenient that you register this information on your cell phone, because this relatively simple data can save your life in the event of an emergency. It is important to be aware of the information that is registered, as anyone who has access to your device may be reading this information. So we recommend that you do not include personal addresses, document numbers, family numbers, among others. Only register information that can save your life in the event of an accident.
