(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!
Just in case...

Yeah it is what it is, only wish I had ordered the card with the pen, thought I had one but I don't, so it's still on my kitchen table waiting to be filled in . Great service from Hope2sleep, fast to dispatch with good communication
Another great product
My 37 year old son recently diagnosed with OSA like me so I bought this for him.
Just as described, however, there's not quite enough room for all you want to put, unless you learn to write in teeny tiny handwriting!Otherwise, Brill!
Again all helps to get help, when needed.
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 👍

International orders are sent via tracked Airmail, and whilst we're happy to ship internationally, we are not responsible for any charges that may be added in your own country.
Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
Wherever possible with larger parcels, we try to re-use boxes to keep shipping costs down and protect the environment.
If a product is out of stock and the order contains multiple items, the 'in stock' items will be sent immediately and further items will follow upon arrival with no further postage charges.
