Any emergency is a stressful situation, and oftentimes it is difficult to remember every detail of one's medical history, such as current medications and allergies, all of which is crucial for responders and hospital staff to know BEFORE they can properly and safely begin treatment. The Vial of Life takes care of this very critical responsibility before the emergency even begins.
