Medical Alert Bracelets: Why You Should Strongly Consider Wearing One
If you’re not already wearing a medical alert bracelet or carrying a medical information card, you should strongly consider it. It could save your life!
First and foremost, if you’re going to wear a medical alert, it should be a bracelet. The first thing an EMT or paramedic will check in an emergency is your pulse--on your wrist. And the first thing they should know when they are assisting you is that you are an insulin dependent diabetic.
Secondly, if you are unable to convey information to the paramedics, they will need to know more about your medical history, allergens, and medications that you are taking. It is important to have these bits of information clearly expressed on your medical alert bracelet, in a clear, concise manner.
Lastly, they should know how to contact your loved ones “in case of an emergency,” which is frequently abbreviated “ICE.” Your medical alert should include at least one phone number to reach your emergency contact.
