There are lots of benefits to wearing a personal engraved medical alert bracelet or other type of Medical ID jewelry. In this blog you will learn everything you need to know about alert bracelets before knowing if getting one yourself could be beneficial.
Why wear a medical ID bracelet?
The main reason for getting medical ID alert jewelry is to provide emergency workers with the correct information about any conditions, allergies or other concerns that could be relevant for your care in the case that you are unconscious or incapacitated. Crucial information like this makes it easier for emergency responders to give the right treatment and save your live.
Medical Identification bracelets have already been around for more that 50 years. That is why most ER personnel is trained to look for such an ID in a necklace, ring or bracelet.
Main benefits of wearing a medical alert bracelet:
Quality of Care You are more likely to receive the correct treatment and also get it faster because first responders will know what could be wrong with you.
Better Perspective A personal engraved medical ID bracelet can give emergency personnel a better perspective on deciding the following steps for a good recovery.
Bystander Response It can also be useful for non-medical bystanders who are first at the scene. For example with Alzheimer's patients it can be very important that bystanders know who to contact and what to do. The same goes for life-threatening allergies.
Lack of Guideline Even though many medical authorities see the benefits for patients wearing medical identification jewelry there are no specific guidelines on which types or what should be on the bracelet. The more people start wearing them, the more authorities will see the need for proper guidelines around medical alert bracelets.
