Medical Identification Tag

Medical Identification Tag

A medical alert bracelet A medical identification tag is a small emblem or tag worn on a bracelet, neck chain, or on the clothing bearing a message that the wearer has an important medical condition that might require immediate attention. The tag is often made out of stainless steel or sterling silver. The intention is to alert a paramedic, physician, emergency department personnel or other first responders (emergency medical services, community first responder, Emergency medical responder) of the condition even if the wearer is not conscious enough, old enough, or too injured to explain. A wallet card with the same information may be used instead of or along with a tag, and a stick-on medical ID tag may be added or used alone. A type of medic identification alert is the USB medical alert tag, essentially a USB flash drive with capacity to store a great deal of emergency information, including contacts and medical conditions. This information is accessible by any computer with a USB port. However, the practical effectiveness of such a system is limited in many cases by medical computer systems that restrict the use of USB devices which may carry malware. It is also possible that a device carried by an unconscious person may not be their own, or not be up to date, with concomitant risks to health and legal liability of medical personnel. Another new type of medic identification alert is QR code based medical alert stickers. The QR code on the sticker links to a web service that contains the individual's emergency information. The information is accessed by any first responder or emergency personnel by scanning the QR code by using a smartphone. Since a web service is used to store the information there is normally no limitation of how much information that can be stored. Continue reading >>

Since diabetics can become incapacitated by low or high blood sugar levels, many doctors recommend patients wear these IDs. It may seem silly to wear a medical alert bracelet all the time, but this functional jewelry can actually help you receive faster treatment. The alert bracelet was developed to give a voice to patients when they dont have one such as when being unconscious or arriving in the emergency room with severe injuries. When patients are unable to provide medical information, its procedure for many hospitals to remove their clothing for a full body exam. Hopefully, this exam provides clues about why the patient is hurt, unable to speak, or experiencing other symptoms. With a medical ID bracelet, doctors can get vital information that much sooner. Plus, these IDs come in handy even if you are injured in a car accident. They let staff know that you also have diabetes, which needs to be treated while in the hospital. What Information Should Be On a Medical ID? When you order a medical alert bracelet, the type of diabetes you have should be displayed boldly on the front.

Beginners Guide To Select And Configure Custom Medical Id Bracelets

Ask your doctor to explain your illness so you understand what to say and how to abbreviate conditions and medications. Ask what critical issues need to be listed, and in what order of importance. Plan your ID tag information to be clear and concise. See Abbreviations Medical conditions are usually the most important. Arrange your medical issues and drugs in order of importance because medical responders may only have seconds to make life saving decisions. Names and phone numbers are the least important as responders and doctors do not have time to make calls. For Alzheimer's patients, phone numbers are needed, but only after their medical issues are stated.

Remember good preparation is the key to good traveling. Here are some tips that can help with your travels.

Emergency Id Bracelet For Travellers

Emergency Id Bracelet For Travellers

When travelling, what do you take with you to help establish your identity in cases of emergency? But, perhaps more importantly, what do you carry in the event youre not in a position to speak for yourself? If an unexpected emergency strikes, an emergency ID bracelet for travellers might be the most important item on your packing list. Like most travellers, I carry emergency contact numbers and identification in my day bag, wallet and phone. But these may not be noticed, or readily accessible to others when theyre most needed.A solution became obvious when I stumbled across RoadID . The company produces bracelets, shoe tags, bar pendants, military-type tags, ankle bracelets and other forms of identification for runners, cyclists and other athletes. I figured this would be useful not only when cycling, but in a variety of travel situations, especially when travelling solo. Faced with so many choices, it was difficult to identify the product that would best serve my needs. The results of a survey of emergency medical professionals by American Medical ID helped: more than 95 percent of respondents look for a medical ID during emergencies; more than 75 percent look for a medical ID immediately upon assessing a patient; 95 percent look at the patients wrist to find a medical ID, and 68 percent look for an ID on the patients neck. RoadID offers a selection of wristbands . The Sport has a strapof nylon webbing with a Velcro closure. The Stretch has a silicone band that can be stretched over the hand. The straps on the more stylish and dressier Elite and Elite+ are also silicone. The Elite has a stainless steel clasp while the Elite+ offers a stainless steel clasp or a pin-and-tuck closure. For my first purchase, I decided on an Elite+ bracelet with a black silicone band and w Continue reading >>

Canadian Diabetes Association And Medicalert Foundation Canada Partner To Protect People With Diabetes

Canadian Diabetes Association And Medicalert Foundation Canada Partner To Protect People With Diabetes

Toronto, ON – A new partnership between MedicAlert Foundation Canada (MAFCA) and the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) means that Canadians living with diabetes will benefit from a special offer on their MedicAlert bracelets. The first to benefit from this partnership are the 1,600 youth attending the CDA’s national D-Camps program, launching on June 29. Over the course of the summer, campers who enroll will receive a free $39 Urban Link MedicAlert bracelet designed for this audience, or this amount applied to a bracelet of greater value. In addition, the more than three million Canadians living with diabetes who become new MedicAlert members through this partnership by June 30, 2015, will receive a free $39 bracelet or this amount applied to a bracelet/ID of greater value. MAFCA is generously donating $10 to the CDA for each new member who joins through either offer. CDA’s D-Camps are the only ones offered across Canada (with the exception of Quebec) for children living with type 1 diabetes. Each year, the 12 camps provide a unique experience for children aged seven to 15 living with type 1 diabetes. Along with a fun experience, the campers learn to be independent in managing their diabetes with the support of a professional medical team. New this year is the launch of Camp Huronda – York University Diabetes Sports Day Camp. Ellie Eplett, 13, who has gone to D-Camps for three years, summarizes her experience: “D-Camp is the best part of summer. I love going because it gives me the chance to relax and be carefree, knowing my diabetes isn’t going to get in the way of anything I want to do and knowing that my diabetes is being well taken care of. It's a chance to meet other kids with type 1 diabetes, just like me! I have made lifelong friendships and countle Continue reading >>

The Best Medical Alert Bracelets Of 2018

The Best Medical Alert Bracelets Of 2018

Types of Medical Alert Bracelets Since 2015, we've researched all types of medical alert bracelets to help you find the most appropriate bracelet for your situation. The type of medical alert bracelet you need depends on many factors – your medical condition, style preferences, comfort preferences, budget and more. Medical ID Bracelets With USB Storage If you have a complicated list of medical conditions, you probably can’t fit the information onto a traditional bracelet with an engraved plate. This is why many medical alert bracelets feature hidden USB storage. A good example of this is the CARE medical alert bracelet. By using the pre-loaded software, you can upload your medical history and requirement. The USB port acts as the clip for the bracelet, which is great because this also means that it comes off easily. If you need help, the bright red medical insignia tells the EMTs that you have special medical requirements. They remove the bracelet, plug it into a computer and can access all of your information. Medical ID Bracelets With NFC Some medical ID bracelets make use of NFC technology, which is a wireless signal that transfers data quickly to a smartphone or other NFC devices rather than a USB drive. A great example of this is the HealthID Emergency Medical ID Bracelet. Similar to the bracelets with USB storage, you add your medical information to the bracelet and EMTs simply have to tap the bracelet with their smartphone to access the information. This provides quicker access to your information than with USB bracelets, but it requires EMTs to have phones or devices with NFC. Medical ID Watches Aside from providing critical medical information, most medical alert bracelets don't provide much practical value. If you're willing or able to pay for it, a medica Continue reading >>

Best Choices For Diabetic's Medical Bracelet Id

Best Choices For Diabetic's Medical Bracelet Id

Dear Dr. Roach • At 62, I was recently diagnosed with central diabetes insipidus, and I am awaiting my first appointment with an endocrinologist to determine what might have caused it, and also to get started on the medication desmopressin. In a few articles I have read about this condition, I saw that it was advisable to get a medical alert bracelet, so I ordered one and got it today. I joined a support group on Facebook, and some of the people on there, including a woman who’s been a nurse for 20 years, recommended NOT putting the word “diabetes” on the bracelet. This is because medical personnel, including EMTs and ER health workers, might stop there and not pay attention to or understand the “insipidus” part. One of my concerns is that in an emergency, the EMT or doctor might start an IV, which could lead to hyponatremia if he or she doesn’t see that the patient is on desmopressin. Many people suggest putting “desmopressin dependent” or “vasopressin deficient” or something other than “diabetic insipidus.” Several people on the support page have said that they or their child has been assumed to have diabetes mellitus and treated as such, and people have been asked about their blood sugar readings at their own doctor’s office. What are your thoughts on this issue? I am completely open to whatever would be the best way to convey the information in an emergency situation. — T.M.H. Answer • The word “diabetes” is from a Greek word meaning “to flow through.” In people with diabetes mellitus (“mellitus” is also from Greek, meaning “sweet”), excess urine is excreted when blood sugars are very high. In diabetes insipidus (from Latin, meaning “tasteless”), sugar levels are normal, but there is excess urine due to lack of or Continue reading >>
