Epilepsy & Medical Alert IDs
Epilepsy is a fairly common neurological condition in which abnormal electrical surges to the brain disrupt normal functioning and cause a seizure; a person is diagnosed as an epileptic when he or she has experienced two or more seizures. More than two million Americans suffer from some form of epilepsy, with about 200,000 new cases diagnosed each year; of that number, about 45,000 are children under the age of 15. While medication is available, seizures can only be controlled for about 80 percent of those with the disorder.
Keeping medical information on hand—literally, with an epilepsy ID bracelet — is imperative. In case of disorientation or unconsciousness during a severe seizure, N-Style ID’s epilepsy medical ID alert bracelets speak for patients who cannot speak for themselves. Medical professionals are trained to look for an epilepsy ID bracelet, which should be engraved with information identifying the disorder, as well as current medications, allergies and any additional health conditions.
It’s especially important for young children, who may not understand their own condition, to wear epilepsy ID bracelets. Because some forms of the disorder are genetic, it’s also a good proactive measure for children of epileptics to wear epilepsy medical ID, even if they have never had a seizure.
