November is National COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) month. COPD is a serious lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe. It is also known as emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD recently surpassed stroke as the third leading cause of death in the U.S. More than 12 million people are diagnosed with the disease, and it’s estimated that 12 million more have the disease and don’t know it.
COPD symptoms are scary—shortness of breath, chronic coughing, and feeling unable to take a deep breath—and a Medical ID can help educate medical personnel and others that you are suffering from this condition. N-Style ID encourages anyone with impaired lung function to wear medical identification and ID tags with information specific to your condition.
N-Style ID’s selection of medical ID tags includes this stainless steel tag that is perfect for larger wrists. It may be worn with any of N-Style ID’s stainless steel chain attachments, rubber attachments, and most of the medical beaded bracelets. This medical ID tag is available in various colors, and can easily and affordably be engraved with your medical information.
With proper medical identification, patients with COPD can feel safer and breathe easier. For more information about National COPD Awareness Month, visit the COPD "Learn More Breathe Better" campaign at http://copd.nhlbi.nih.gov.
