Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car.

This works well if any kind of emergency occurs and you need to get someone's attention.

3. "Is there anything in my history, physical exams, laboratory findings, or other test that seem not to fit with your working diagnosis?"
