Medical Alert Cards
Muscular Dystrophy Queensland has created condition-specific alert cards for the most commonly diagnosed muscle-wasting conditions.
These new cards mean that people living with muscle wasting conditions and their families will have the security of knowing they can easily inform emergency health care professionals of the vital and specific issues that affect children and adults with these conditions.
Alert cards are conveniently shaped to fit inside a wallet and outline key recommendations and precautions that a non-specialist clinician would need to know during a time of worsening health. To make sure the cards are effective they cover a wide range of possible symptoms and situations. The card also includes important contact information on a person’s specialist neuromuscular and respiratory teams which will ensure expert advice will be much easier to access.
