Stop for a moment and consider what would happen if you suddenly had problems breathing while walking down the street – what would a passerby do? They wouldn’t necessarily know how to help. By carrying an emergency rescue breathing card in your wallet and wearing a neck breather bracelet, you take the guesswork out of the equation. You are equipped with the correct information and more likely to get the help you need before or when a trained medical professional arrives.
