1. An emergency medical monitoring and transmission system capable of sending a message to both a personal caretaker and an emergency response center, said system comprising:

  • a wearable monitor/transmitter device that includes a glucose level detector to detect a blood glucose level of a patient, a geolocation system that indicates location of said patient, and a communication interface to send a message;

    a processor unit operable with said wearable monitor/transmitter device that collects information produced by said glucose level detector and said geolocation system to determine whereabouts and existence of a hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic condition of said patient, wherein said processor unit effects collection of blood glucose levels at time instances that vary according to proximity of a detected level to an unsafe limit;

    said processor unit further including program instructions to effect assembly of said message that includes patient identifier data, whereabouts of said patient, and an emergency alert indication; and

    said processor being further operable to effect activation of said communication interface to transmit said message in response to a hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic condition of said patient;

    a transmission path of said communication interface to send, in response to said emergency alert indication, an emergency message to an emergency response center and to said personal caretaker to simultaneously indicate at at least two locations that the patient requires assistance; and

    a caretaker receiver accessible by a personal caretaker of said patient to receive said message and to produce an alarm indicating that the patient requires assistance in response to receipt of said emergency alert indication.
