(Details shown apply to the default selection)
This Important Medical Alert Card is for patients with Sleep Apnoea and all other Sleep Disordered Breathing conditions that require CPAP or Non-Invasive Ventilation. It is for carrying with you in your purse or wallet and informs paramedics, in an emergency, and hospital staff etc. of the need for CPAP or Non-Invasive Ventilation use when asleep or unconscious.
The card is the same size and as durable as a credit card, and has the added convenience of strips to enable writing on it easier. An ultrafine permanent ink marker works best, and there is the option to purchase the medical card with a suitable pen.
The pictures show a front view and a rear view of the card, and the wording is as follows:-
"I have a Sleep Disordered Breathing Condition and require non-invasive assistance to breathe when asleep or unconscious."
There are writeable strips to fill in your Medical Condition (ie Sleep Apnoea etc), the kind of Therapy (ie CPAP) you use and an Emergency Contact.
There are writeable strips to list Any Other Imporant Medical Conditions, Your Address + Tel No, GP + Tel No plus your Hospital/Sleep Clinic and Tel No.
Even if you are unable to afford one of our cards at this time, which we do try to offer at an affordable price, it is highly recommended to have some form of written warning in your wallet or purse to alert medics to the fact you regularly stop breathing when asleep or unconscious!
I purchased this item, the Medical Alert Card and I was disappointed when it arrived. Not nearly enough space for vital information. Charity number and company name on both sides of the card - one side would be quite adequate and clearly the layout needs some though to allow more space for lengthly home address, such in my case. Overall, in my honest opinion, I wish I hadnt purchased it and could have made my own, if knowing how poor this product is.

Sorry to hear you're the 1st person to be disappointed with our card, but we will never please everyone. Perhaps the addresses are longer in Denmark than here in the UK and you could find a local manufacturer of them catering for your needs. You are welcome to contact us for a refund, but in our defence we clearly show the amount of space there is for the writing our details. Nonetheless, we appreciate constructive criticism so thank you for leaving your review.
Very pleased to at last have a card which isn't designed purely for a CPAP machine (I have a NIPPY). Very reassuring to carry around and could be a life-saver in an emergency. Thank you ...
I felt that this would be extremely helpful in an emergency.
Keep on me at all times gives peace of mind if anything happens to alert help to your condition 👍
very pleased with my order and arrived in perfect condition. Been looking for 1 of these for ages and found them from you. hope to purchase from you again, many thanks.
Great idea for when travelling. Informs it is medical equipment and also has details if you do happen to part company with your bag for some reason.
The card is good, but like all cards of this type, try as I might, I could not get my signature on it without a lot of problems.
Sorry you had difficulty writing on the card Susanna, but we've put on the listing the best pens are the permanent ink markers which we sell as an optional purchase of the cards. Glad you like it though :)
Excellent how ever use a pen with a smaller nib than the one on offer
