Two health histories are recommended: (1) an individual record for yourself and any person to whom you are the caregiver or will become the caregiver of; (2) and family health pedigree showing health issues of your blood relatives. An interesting pedigree chart can be made by listing inherited characteristics for the blood line (simply change the information under the persons name to eye color, hair color, complexion, and distinguishing marks).
Carry a copy of each of these records with your medical insurance card and give a copy of each to the person who might become your caregiver.

ICE = In Case of Emergency
Who would have thought that programming a simple acronym into a cell phone could be a useful resource for paramedics when they're trying to reach a victim's loved ones? In light of 2005's terrorist attacks in London, a British paramedic was struck with the idea of doing just that, and the country quickly adopted the practice.
Here's how it works: Cell-phone users program "ICE" (short for "in case of en emergency") into their phones' contact lists, followed by the person they want contacted in case of an emergency and his or her phone number. Then, if a person is injured and unable to communicate, the paramedics can easily know who to call and how to reach them.
The International Association of Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics has endorsed the ICE campaign, along with many police departments, ambulance services, fire departments and hospitals.
Is every cell phone in your family programmed with ICE? Make sure it is done today!
