Remember those SOS bracelets that were all the rage in the 70′s…?

From the desk of the Assistant Surgeon General – R20

Recognised internationally by the emergency services, SOS Talisman is an attractive range of jewellery that comes in many styles sos heart– but with an important job to do. It instantly provides vital information about the wearer in case of an accident, illness or emergency.

It can contain whatever information you wish. Who you are. Who to notify in an emergency. What allergies you may have. Your blood group. Whether you’re taking any medication. Are you a diabetic, heart patient or pregnant?

It’s all detailed on a unique information strip of non-soluble paper that’s securely contained in the SOS Talisman capsule, which is both water-tight and heat resistant, yet easily accessible in an emergency.

from the desk of the Assistant Surgeon General…..

 

MTD… What is Muscle Tension Dyphonia?  It is a term used to describe vocal symptoms, such as hoarseness or discomfort, that develop from the way in which the voice is habitually used in speech or singing.  Other terms often used to describe the same condition include ‘Vocal Hyperfunction’  or ‘Hyperfunctional Voice Disorder’.
