What happens when the worlds of fashion and medical needs meet? Medical jewelry has been around for many years, but it has taken a new turn of awareness for many people who are suffering from different diseases and conditions. Those with medical badges have been reluctant to wear them due to their bulky sizes and appearance. Because of this, there has been a big shift in the appearance of the medical jewelry in the last few years and more options continue to come out as well. There are now many different pieces available in necklaces, bracelets and charms.
These pieces look like fashionable pieces of jewelry, but also have a medical symbol on the outward side and any specifics on the opposite side. When someone feels like the piece of jewelry is not an eye sore, they are more likely to wear it; so more and more people are satisfied with putting this very important piece of jewelry on every single day.
Every now and then, you may notice some people are wearing a bracelet or necklace that has a medical insignia on it. What are these pieces of jewelry and why do people wear them? To put it simply, these bracelets and necklaces are worn as a way of notifying other people that the wearer has some sort of medical need. The needs can cover a variety of different areas, but if there is a medical emergency, these pieces of medical jewelry can save that wearer’s life.

This is a just a sample of the afflictions and illnesses that can be worn on a medical ID. Many times doctors will recommend that their patient should be wearing a bracelet, but the patient doesn’t always heed the advice. If you feel like you would have any sort of medical needs or requirements that should be known in an emergency situation, or you or your loved one is unable to communicate these needs to others, then you are the perfect candidate for a medical ID.
Why Should You Wear Them?
For adults, there are many circumstances where there could be a major health problem, such as seizures or passing out while driving, and people need to know what is wrong and what the best way would be to treat those suffering. For children, it is important to have a medical ID on them so that people around them can know if there are any medical issues; for example, food allergies. This way the medical conditions can be known, even if the person, adult or child who is wearing the ID is not able to tell the responders.
When a person is unable to communicate their needs, this bracelet is supposed to do the job. Many times people will be exhibiting symptoms that could be interpreted to be any number of problems. This can lead to a misdiagnosis on the part of medical personnel who may be trying to help figure out what is wrong. If someone has passed out at the scene of a car accident, it could have been a person with epilepsy having a seizure, a diabetic with too low of blood sugar, or maybe it’s just someone who drank too much alcohol at a party. Having the answers right there on the person, with a piece of medical jewelry, can be crucial in saving a life as now emergency responders can take a more educated guess and give the proper help immediately.
Do They Really Make A Difference?
Having some sort of medical jewelry on your person will always make a big difference. When asked, emergency response teams reported that 95% of them look for a medical ID when first assessing a patient. This means that the ID’s are almost certain to be seen. Plus, if you are sending your child to school, a party or to someone else’s house, it can serve as a reminder of allergies, needed medications or other medical requirements that the wearer should remember.
When Should You Order?
There are many different levels of these ailments and conditions that people suffer from that require different amounts of attention. However, if you walk away from a doctor’s appointment knowing that you are going to need an ID eventually, the sooner you get it the better. Anything could happen at any time when you are just going about your day. If you are left unable to communicate your medical needs, you could be risking a lot of health problems as well as unnecessary bills. Having an ID on you is a great insurance policy against these two things and possibly death. Getting your ID made and sent to you can take some time, so ordering it should be your first priority. Have it sent to you and always remember to wear it, because you never know when you are going to need it!
