Medik Awas

What is Medik Awas?

Medik Awas aims to prevent medical mishaps by alerting medical and dental personnel to any specific medical problems of registrants through the use of identification devices, such as a card or an amulet.

Why Medik Awas?

A person known to be hypersensitive to a drug, such as penicilin or tetanus antitoxin, must be so identified, as administration of the offending drug can lead to a violent, if not fatal reaction. Similarly, a patient suffering from a chronic disease, like bleeding tendency or diabetes, should carry a warning message. In the event of an accident or complication of the disease, immediate recognition of his condition can save his life. Patients on long-term course of drugs, e.g. steriods or anticoagulants, are identified in the same manner, as the therapy itself may give rise to hazardous side-effects.

All these patients and others with different hidden problems should enrol with Medik Awas and carry an identification card as a protection in an emergency. If a patient is unable to tell his medical history after an accident or sudden illness, the card may just save his life.
