Item Given Away: A Very Special Heart
Start Date: February 20
End Date: March 6

A Very Special Heart is dedicated to providing consumers with the ability to take control of their personal health and wellness. The Very Special Heart and Globe have been designed to give any individual or family a powerful tool that assists in critical emergency situations as well as for day-to-day care.

A Very Special Heart™ software has been developed in partnership with FLASHealth, LLC, which specializes in software for the healthcare community. Our web services are powered by InterSystems’ Cache’ and Ensemble technologies, the same technology used internationally and by the top 10 hospitals in the United States.

Your Very Special Heart™ can be worn as a necklace or used as a keychain or purse clip (keychain/purse clip included). One side has an elegant filigree pattern, the other side – a smooth, contemporary finish. But it’s what’s inside this heart that makes it so very special.

Inside your Very Special Heart™ lies an incredible feat of engineering, which allows you to carry all of your Personal Health Records…and a dose of emergency medication. You can also carry all of your family’s health records and secure copies of important documents (passports, driver’s licenses, birth certificates etc).

This is the wallet ID card that is provided with each Very Special Heart™ and Globe. This card tells emergency personnel where you carry your Very Special Heart™ or Globe.

This card instructs emergency medical personnel to connect your Heart or Globe to a USB port to view your lifesaving Emergency Medical Information.

Why do you need A Very Special Heart?

In an emergency, Doctors and EMTs make crucial decisions about your medical treatment. These decisions are based on the best information available. Without reliable, detailed information, critical treatment maybe delayed…and this may mean the difference between life or death.

With your Very Special Heart™ or Globe there are no delays. When it’s plugged into any PC, anywhere in the world, your Very Special Heart™ software* automatically displays your emergency medical information.

Below is what your information looks like when it is plugged in to a computer…

My Thoughts

This is one of those products that has a lot of importance and that I wholeheartedly recommend everyone getting. It could be a matter of life or death. Ever since I received my A Very Special Heart to review and add to my I Love Tech Gadgets week I have learned the importance of it and have been making a big push for all the members of my family and my friends to get one for themselves. I do not like thinking about the worst case scenario but I do, and having this has actually eased my mind a bit about what would happen if I was unconscious in an accident. I am using mine as a keychain and have instructed medical personnel to look to my key chain for my medical information. I love this product and I am so happy to ave it now. Like I said I HIGHLY recommend A Very Special Heart to everyone!

  34. Maureen says:

    As someone who has had to wear a medic alert bracelet before this is a wonderful idea. I like it also for the travel documents or the passort info.

  35. Jenny says:

    I would put my credit card in the heart.

  36. I must say this is the most amazing thing I have seen in a long time. what a fantastic idea~! I would add all the options. That’s what makes this little heart so special. I would love to have my important documents and my medical release forms not to mention my drivers license and birth certificate secured with me too. I wonder if you could also have a copy of your will on it too?? I love how they made it pretty to wear. The old medical alert bracelets and necklaces were so ugly. I think that’s why so many people never wore them. At first I thought they were great for women but how many men are gonna want to wear a heart then I saw that they have a globe key chain for the men which was wonderful. I’m suppose to wear a medical alert bracelet or necklace because I am allergic to penicillin. I did for a while but I just hated the look. My father goes in the hospital Tuesday to have blocked arteries bypassed to his legs. He has lot’s of medical conditions and a long list of medications this would be perfect for him to have too. He is 72 and I worry about him all the time.

  37. I’m a subscriber. When I received your email I just had to check this out. I still am so amazed with this review. I just sent my mother the link to this review. She is diabetic and should have one and definitely my father. My sister and I also could use this. I also sent the link to your review to my group online because I really think this would save lives and is really important.

  47. SANDY says:

    med release

  48. Anson says:

    I’d want X-rays and MRIs

  49. I am allergic to penicillin. This would be just great to warn people if I am unable to tell them myself.

  50. My husband has diabetes. He needs medication protection too.

  51. Judie says:

    The thing I’d like to put on it besides my medical records is that “I am an Organ Donor” another thing I’s like to put in it is “no BP needle sticks etc on R-arm due to breast cancer surgery” This is the greates thing. I just went through 3 hours of Pre-OP paper work for a surgery I’m having on Tues. I wish I had one of these with all my info on. It would have made things a lot easier.I’m pretty good about keeping my medical records, but this would make it so much easier.

  52. Judie says:

    I subscribed to your Blog by e-mail

  53. Bacallsmom says:

    Organ donation information would be good to keep on such a device, but to me the crucial info is medications (like blood thinners) that emergency doctors would need to treat you properly in an emergency.

    My daughter has some serious health issues and this would be a wonderful tool to have!! Another thing I’d put on it is her drivers license – she often forgets and looses things – so could be helpful!!

  60. I would want my x-ray info put on the “heart” because I have titanium implants in my cervical and lumbar spine, which always sets off a metal detector. Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway.

    I like the idea of putting you Organ Donation info in it. I think being an organ donor is one of the best options a person can make in their life.
    It helps so many people and is the right thing to do.
    Great device, great giveaway, thanks.

    I’d definitly put my Organ donor info and Advanced directives on it, as well as med.info. As a Nurse in ICU I got to see 1st hand what heartache and havoc it causes in families when they have to make these kind of difficult decisions For ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER!

    One document that I would include with my Very Special Heart would be a medical release form.

  82. Marc says:

    Never seen anything like this before…cool and practical. I would put my organ donor information on there.

  83. Happi Shopr says:

    medical release/parental release forms for hubby, myself and kids.

  84. Jodi says:

    Medical release forms are something that I would want on my heart.

  85. Kim H. says:

    I liked Option 1 the public documents. I think it’s very important to have your DNR already made out if that is something you wish to have upheld. Option 2 is cool, too.

    I have never heard of this thing, but now that I have, I’ll be thinking about my family and suggesting it to them. Thanks.

  86. Amanda Barnes says:

  91. Charles Opperman says:

    I would put info on aortic valve replacement I had done.

  92. Auriette says:

    The first thing I’d put on my Heart would be a DNR form for myself and my husband. We know each others’ wishes and we’ve told our parents, but it would be awful to be in the middle of a court battle if one of us were incapacitated.

  93. REBECCA says:

    Organ Donor information!

  125. David Thames says:

    The product like “A Very Special Heart” is a great idea but there are problems (at least in our area of the country). The hospital and EMS services that we use will not plug a device that has not been proven to be safe to their computer equipment (virus and malware free). I’ve asked the company that makes “A Very Special Heart” via …email to send documentation and possibly a sample product to the hospital and EMS services, but they have not replied nor have the agencies received anything. I our case, I have a family member that has a very lengthy medical history, med list, provider list and allergy list. Having to print, update, re-print time and time again for every visit and test gets to be expensive and time consuming. So someone needs to push this product harder especially in the hospital and ambulance services in every community to get it accepted.
