Re: [IP] Medic bracelet



Unfortuntely, EMT's won't act on the pump info, are unlikely to know what it
means and frequently don't check bracelets anyway.  But they do check (at
least they are supposed to) before they give meds so those and the insulin
dependant diabetes are more important than info about the pump.
