Which medical ID is right for me?


It’s important to note that every custom-engravable medical ID is just that:custom engravable. That means the same medical ID will work whether you need a medical ID for diabetes, lymphedema, gastric bypass, or any other condition.
95% of first responders report they check the neck and both wrists of unresponsive patients, so despite the type of medical ID you choose, in an emergency, your medical ID may advocate for you.

Interchangeable medical ID bracelets:

When you opt for an interchangeable medical ID, you’re purchasing a bracelet strand with lobster clasps at both ends and a removable medical ID tag. You can purchase multiple strands and continue using the same medical ID tag. If any of your personal information changes, you can simply replace the custom-engraved medical ID tag.

Medical ID Cuffs:

Cuffs are extremely easy to wear. Pull gently to open, put it on, and squeeze tighter for just the right fit every time. Cuffs are an excellent option for people who experience swelling of the extremities, those with dexterity challenges, and those who have had bariatric surgery and are looking for the ultimate in adjustability.

Medical ID necklaces and custom-engravable dog tags:

Sometimes, people simply prefer medical ID necklaces to bracelets. Other times, people choose necklaces because they cannot wear bracelets in the workplace.

Why do I need a medical ID?


Over 60 million Americans have a medical condition which should be immediately known by first responders in the event of an emergency.


EMT and first responders are trained to look for a medical alert. Medical identification alerts first responders to your vital medical information as well as your name and emergency contact information. With proper medical identification, a first responder may be made aware of your condition, providing the information that may assist them in treating you properly.

If you are a caregiver, then you should also wear a medical ID to alert emergency personnel of your loved one who needs attention. Let your medical identification jewelry speak for you when you can't.

DIABETES


If you have Diabetes, be sure to identify the type. It is important to indicate if you are insulin dependent, on an insulin pump or on medications. This will help the emergency personnel to properly diagnose your condition and expedite your treatment.

GASTRIC BYPASS


If you have had gastric bypass surgery or lap band surgery it is important to wear a medical ID bracelet to alert emergency technicians that you cannot have a blind NG tube inserted. Here is what we recommend for gastric bypass patients.

ALLERGIES


Allergies encompass a wide range of symptoms and affect people differently. The severity of allergic reactions can depend on the allergen type, the level of exposure and each individual's immune response. If you have a severe allergy, it is important to notify emergency personnel so that they can react and administer treatment quickly. Here are some samples of how to engrave a tag for allergies.
