Medical Alert Card

Would you know how to explain your Post Polio condition if in another country, on holiday or work, where you are not fluent in the language? Would you know how to explain that the Polio you had makes you liable to respiratory problems if you need anaesthesia following an accident or illness when away from home; or that certain drugs have contra indicators to Post Polio Syndrome? How about the fact that you may be unconscious or unable to communicate?

Many people carry medical alert bracelets or cards for conditions such as diabetes, until now there has been nothing to deal with Post Polio Syndrome. The European Polio Union, with the kind help and co-operation of Dr. Peter Brauer, M.D., has devised a set of cards that you can print off in MS Word or Adobe Reader. Just fill in your name, forename and date of birth and carry one for the country you are going to visit or even your own homeland. You never know when it may be needed.

The cards will be internationally recognized as all bear the Medical alert symbol in the bottom right corner together with the EPU web site address for further information.

Please note that further cards will be added in the future until all European Council countries are covered. If the country you need does not appear at present you are advised to carry a card in French or English.
