Traveling to a different location, regardless of how far away or close it is, to receive medical treatment or care can be stressful, exhausting, and even financially burdensome for most patients. Luckily, there are certain things you can do to ease the situation and make your medical stay in a foreign place slightly more comfortable. Keep reading for some helpful medical travel tips and a list of things to pack for your trip!
Create a Personal Medical Travel Kit
No one knows your situation better than you, your physicians, and the people closest to you do. Work together to create an ideal personalized medical travel kit that has everything you need to make your stay in your location as comfortable and convenient as possible. From painkillers to medical tape or bandages, a medical travel kit can help cut down the costs of the trip and minimize the chances of having to stop by the store to pick up curative items.
Keep Your Travel and Medical Documents Well Organized
Whether you’re traveling domestically or internationally, it’s always best to keep all of your travel and medical documents including various forms of identification well organized and on your person in case you need to present them to authorities or for any other purposes. Keep them in a special compartment in your carry-on bag and this way, you’ll always know exactly where they are without having to look for them.
Include Any Technology That’ll Make Your Trip Easier
Technology serves a multitude of purposes. It can be a major source of comfort and entertainment when you’re enduring a particularly stressful time in your life or are forced to travel for long periods of time to receive the medical treatment you need. Life saving medical technology such as EpiPens and blood sugar monitoring devices for diabetics are key components of your luggage and should always be included.
Bring a Multi-Port USB Charger
If you’re traveling abroad to receive medical treatment that’s unavailable or unaffordable in your own country, then it’s absolutely paramount that you bring along a reliable multi-port USB charger to keep all of your devices fully charged during your medical travel stay. Traveling from North America to Europe, for example, can be challenging for first time travelers who neglect to purchase electrical adapters beforehand. While you can certainly purchase these at the airport once you land, the cost of doing so is astronomical compared to planning ahead. All you need is one electrical adapter to connect your state-of-the-art multi-port USB charger and charge all of your devices simultaneously. This way, you’ll never have to worry about any of your devices dying on you and you can focus on your medical treatment instead.
Ohming Technology has just the product you need to keep all of your other technological devices fully charged at all times.
