Wearing Medical ID bracelets may save your life. And they are not for older people only. Anyone who has a medical condition, is taking certain medications that could be dangerous or interact with other medicines, or has a severe allergy to something should consider investing in one of these bracelets. Medical ID bracelets come in many shapes, sizes, and styles and are fairly inexpensive when compared with the cost of one’s life or health being damaged.
The increasing illness in the baby boomer population is one reason. A higher than ever diabetes rate is another. There are no outwards physical signs that indicate “I have a heart condition.” There is not always a way to tell what a person is allergic to in the event of an emergency. Truthfully, all of these are reasons for the existence and importance of medical ID bracelets. But what are they, what is their purpose, and how can they help people with different needs?
Medical ID bracelets come in many different styles, shapes, and designs so that a person can choose one that is not only suitable to their tastes but works well within their lifestyle without hindering it. The idea behind medical ID bracelets is that they serve as a functional piece of jewelry while also alerting those who may help in a medical emergency to a person’s medical conditions. Things that are typically found on medical ID bracelets include heart conditions, being a diabetic, allergies to medications, allergies to bees, foods, or latex, or other medical conditions that can be considered life threatening or important for medical personnel to know in the event of the person needing treatment.
Medical ID bracelets are not fashioned just for older people who might be more likely to need them. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes to even accommodate children who have special medical needs and might be in need of treatment at some moment in time and not able to communicate their health needs in a way that is important. Some bracelets are tag-style and information is engraved directly on them while others are made to be more discreet.
Some have a panel that slides open and reveals a person’s personal information while other bracelet styles have a removable piece where a person can type out a full description of their medical history or precautions, which is best suited to those with a complicated medical history. Some types like the latter are changeable as the person’s medical history changes too, and obvious advantage over the other style.
Depending on what one desires the bracelet to be made out of will determine cost. For basic medical ID bracelets that come pre-engraved at most pharmacies with common descriptions such as “diabetic” and “heart condition” a person can expect a relatively low cost. The next expense level would involve ordering a custom engraved bracelet that might take several days or weeks to get, made of stainless steel, and can be purchased for approximately twenty dollars. The more expensive varieties are the medical ID bracelets that allow for the storage of complicated ID papers telling a person’s medical history or that have a little compartment to keep information concealed from prying eyes while still bearing a medical symbol on the outside, and the most expensive of this variety are made of gold rather than some other material.
Buyers can expect to pay as much as seventy or eighty dollars for a gold bracelet with this kind of structure to it, if they decide this is what they desire. But no matter what type of bracelet a person decides on, if they have a serious medical condition or are taking certain medicines, any money spent might be a small cost and the little bit of money that saves their lives.
