Why do I need a medic alert bracelet?

Ask Your Family Jeweler - January 2012 Edition

In 1963 the American Medical Association designated a special symbol to be used in alerting emergency medical personnel of special medical conditions when a person is unable to communicate for themselves. Almost 50 years after being introduced, medic alert IDs are common and emergency medical personnel are trained to look for them.

Medical IDs are designed to carry vital, possibly life saving information engraved upon them. However, many people with medical conditions are not utilizing this possibly lifesaving tool. Who especially should wear a medical alert ID?

Wearing a medical ID is especially important if you have:

  • A heart condition
  • Diabetes
  • Food allergies
  • Medication allergies
  • Asthma, Emphysema or COPD
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Implants
  • Necessary Medications
For those suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, a medical ID bracelet can also be vital in case they become disoriented or wander away from home.

If you or a loved one find yourself in need of a medical alert ID do not hesitate to get one, it could be a matter of life or death someday. At Amoskeag Jewelers we have an extensive line of medical ID items. Let our trained professionals help guide you through the process of choosing and engraving the best medical ID option for you or your loved ones.
