Bracelets speak on behalf of the person who is wearing one when they are incapable of speaking and no one is around who knows about their medical condition(s). When dealing with emergency situations, it is essential that all emergency response teams (EMTs) are able to swiftly identify any and all medical conditions that may prohibit certain life saving techniques. Without this knowledge, it is easy to misdiagnose a symptom as “common” and the right care is delayed and possibly jeopardized.
Medical alert jewelry speeds up first responder assessments. All health care professionals are in agreement that early detection of certain medical conditions can save lives as ID bracelets aid in avoiding harmful, and sometimes fatal, medical errors. With the information on a medical ID bracelet on hand, emergency teams are able to recognize certain health factors and provide the right care. Now all first responders are trained to look for medical ID bracelets and other pieces of medical alert jewelry.
Medical ID bracelets should be worn at all times, even when sleeping. It is essential to find a durable, long lasting medical ID bracelet. Many of the top healthcare organizations urge the use of medical ID bracelets, including the World Health Organization, the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Mayo Clinic, the American Diabetes Association, and the American Heart Association.
