MEDICAL INFORMATION FORM FOR ARMBANDS (Art. 523.1, Eventing Rules)
To ensure that vital information is available to first aid or medical personnel in case of emergency:
Alternatively (and at the minimum) a medical armband of good quality can be used. Athletes who chose to wear an armband should use this form to record their medical information.
* Relevant conditions include recent head injury, serious past injuries/surgery, chronic health problems such as diabetes, long-term medications and allergies. If in doubt, the athlete should discuss this with his own treating physician.
* * Medical data carrier (also called “medical identification tag”): small emblem or tag worn on a bracelet, neck chain, or on the clothing, intended to alert paramedics/physicians/ first responders that the wearer has an important medical condition.
