The Importance of Medical ID Bracelets

Medical ID bracelets and other forms of medical identification jewelry literally save lives every day in the United States and around the world. It’s amazing how valuable a simple bracelet, necklace or charm can be when it comes to the health and well-being of you or someone you love.

 

Millions of Americans live with health conditions that can suddenly render them unconscious or otherwise unable to communicate clearly. When that happens, the victim can’t effectively relay relevant medical information to first responders. And if a loved one familiar with your health condition isn’t present, first responders lose valuable time trying to identify the probable cause of your impaired state. With many of these conditions, moments can mean the difference between life and death.

 

 

Medical ID jewelry is recommended by physicians and health organizations for conditions including asthma, allergies, diabetes, heart disease, epilepsy and more. Bracelets and necklaces, the most common types of medical jewelry, are usually engraved with details such as the wearer’s medical conditions, medications and emergency contact.

Medical professionals value medical ID bracelets and always hope to find them when treating a non-communicative patient. In a recent survey, 95% of emergency responders and 75% of emergency room personnel said they immediately check patients for medical ID jewelry.

In addition to the conditions already listed, some of the most common health conditions for which people wear medical ID bracelets are high blood pressure, dialysis, pacemakers, cancer, lung disease, multiple sclerosis and stroke. All of these have the potential to place someone in a life-threatening situation and in need of urgent care.

Children with ADD/ADHD, autism and other special needs should also wear medical ID bracelets. These may not be directly associated with medical emergencies, but awareness of a child’s condition can help teachers, policemen and other adults better understand how to relate to the child when parents aren’t present and provide contact information to reach parents should the need arise. The same is true for people with Alzheimer’s.
