Saw quite a lot of these in Portugal - would the medical professionals rely on it though? If someone borrowed a jacket cos they were cold and were given the wrong blood group it can be fatal.

Maybe, the original adverty type post doesn't but I think most of us are more like;ly to need a transfusion after taking involuntary flying lessons. Therefore I feel that it does belong here.
Just my point of view

Default blood group patches,

well, imho its spam for someone trying to sell patches.
in the event of a major accident, its not failing to get blood quick that kills people, its losing the blood you have that does the damage. by the time you get to A+E then youre going to be getting stabilised anyhow, so what use is this?

theyre of little or no use in the real world that the rest of us live in, but if they make you feel better then go and waste your money on one. hospitals have no problems matching bloodgroups now, even if they dont know your group, theyre going to be able to give you something till they get an exact match, and i bet you cant find a single accident and emergency unit in the ENTIRE uk that will take the presence of such a patch as a definative piece of info on your blood group, nope, aint gonna happen, if yer conscious when you get taken in, then theyre gonna ask you, but if youre aout for the count, then they arent going to start debating if thats your jacket or not, nor will they even probably read it, as if its a major bleed, your jacket will probably be cut off and shoved in a bag. they'll just do their own tests anyway, regardless of what patch you have on.

worthy idea on the face of it, but in reality a complete waste of money.

Civi medical groups, A&E ambulance staff or not allowed to use badges, medical bangles and tattoos as evidence of blood group .

You could have someone else's jacket/helmet on or you might have tattooed the wrong group on your arm.

So it's a waste of time.

Blood donor cards can be used if there is photo ID that also matched but usually not even them.

I used to have a sticker on my old lid that said " IN EVENT OF ACCIDENT DO NOT REMOVE HELMET" which I thought was a good thing, seeing as when theres a bike accident the first thing people do is rip the poor blokes helmet off. ( the one on his head )
havent seen one in many years though.

having been on a st john ambulance rider down course myself, let me ask you this,
you are the only person on scene after a bike crash, the casualty is unconscious and not breathing,tick tock. they are also wearing a full face lid. tick tock.
do you leave their helmet on and stand round watching them die? tick tock.
bear in mind, even if you call an ambulance the instant the bike crashes, you will not see it on scene for at least 8 minutes,tick tock, and thats assuming you arent out in the sticks. also, the brain when starved of oxygen will die in about 2 minutes. tick tock. too late, your ignorance of what to do has possibly turned a survivable incident into a fatality. im not saying you killed him, but im saying that you didnt save him. now YOU live with that knowlege!
but hey, at least you can tell the widow that you didnt take his lid off,
theres a lot of ignorance in the biking world about what to do in the event of a spill. get some training if you can, it may save someone elses life one day, and someone elses training might save yours.

Same as I would do get his Helmet off and Clear his Airway so the poor bugger can breath....I did the Biker First on scene with JohnR...He's just as dead if he can't breath as he is with a broken neck...So you would just stand over your mate and growl at anyone who tried to help him until he snuffed it....
