Medical Information form for Eventing Armbands

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:

  • At FEI Eventing competitions, athletes with medical conditions that may be relevant* in the case of a medical emergency have the responsibility to wear a medical data carrier** from a system provider able to communicate information at least in English.

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.

  • All athletes must provide the telephone number of an accompanying person/next-of-kin to the event secretariat upon arrival. The OC and medical officer must ensure that all information has been received before the Cross Country. This information will be destroyed by the OC after the event.
