medical id for Iphones, keep yourself safe, save your life, be prepared, be safe, be prepared

Recently I saw an article a facebook friend had shared that I couldn’t believe I didn’t know about. I want to get the word out in case you are in the dark like I was. Here is the original article.

This is a great app that I really had just kept in a folder out of view and hadn’t given much thought to, not realizing how great it really is.

The Health app is a free app that is already on newer Apple devices. While it has a pedometer and health meters that are great, its real hero is the medical info you can save. This would be handy if you were in an accident or need to get to a hospital but are unable to communicate. It has a spot for your name, emergency contact info, allergies, meds you are taking, important info that could save you from a potential reaction.

All you have to do is open the “health” app. In the bottom right corner is “medical ID”. Click on it to get to the screen above and begin saving your information. If you select “show when locked” than there is no need to know your security code to access the information. On the lock screen, select “emergency” down in the bottom corner. It will then take you to the next screen where you can select “medical ID”.

So easy, and already included on your device. It is potentially a life saver and definitely a piece of mind provider. I immediately did it to my daughter’s phone. I love the extra security of knowing that if she isn’t with me she would still have the vital info in an emergency situation.

Is Super Glue Safe For Cuts?

Everyone has heard of the idea of using Super Glue for cuts and open wounds. But have you ever actually done that? Yeah – it hurts and hurts bad. Also nothing in Super Glue makes it sterile. Who knows what kind of crazy infection you could get on top of it hurting so bad! My husband has been a nurse in a local hospital for over 12 years and this Mastisol Medical Glue is the exact same type they use in their hospital. The same packaging and everything! And this is completely sterile and safe to use on lacerations, cuts or wounds.

My 11 year old loves to read science books (lol she did NOT get that from me) she begs me to do science experiments almost everyday. In an effort to support her love of learning  I give her access to the supplies she needs (unless it to blow something up…lol).  It is amazing how excited she is about these simple experiments.

For example how much salt does it take to get an egg to float in water. Salt makes the water denser, so things that are  less dense than the salt water will float.  Start with a glass of water, and egg and table salt.  Add one tablespoon of salt in at a time and see how much it takes to make the egg float.

Since she is almost done with her current experiment book I was looking for another one to keep her busy once school is out this summer. I thought I would share them with you as well… or see if you have any to recommend.
