Many of us think smartphones do more harm than good. They distract us from things that require focus, take up all our time and make us social-media addicts!

But one brilliant nurse tells the news that a vital smartphone feature may actually save your life someday. This vital iPhone (now available on Android too!) feature can help medical personnel save you in a life-or-death situation!

The feature is called Medical ID and it’s available in every iPhone for free. Due to recent updates, this feature is also available on the Android phone as Emergency Information.

Julia Thompson, the nurse who shared the feature on her Facebook describes just how important it’s to every smartphone user to create a Medical ID.

“Working in a public hospital and seeing patients in ER all the time, I see many patients come in and we have had no way of knowing who they are, or how to contact their next of kin, or their medical history! And their phones are locked!

But many people don’t realize that you can set up something called a ‘Medical ID’ on your iPhone if you have the health app (free with the phone). I didn’t even realize this when I got my own iPhone!

This information can be accessed even while the phone is locked by clicking on the emergency options and can display things like name, date of birth, emergency contacts, medical conditions and even blood type and donor status. You can even add notes!

I believe Android [users] have an app called ICE (‘in case of emergency’) that works similarly….”
