Whatever the prognosis, be it stroke prevention, heart disease or as a general precaution against clots forming due to the treatment you are receiving, you need to wear a Medical ID Bracelet. You are probably taking all the other precautions already like not shaving with a regular razor blade, avoiding cuts as much as is possible and watching you movement to prevent falls. However careful we are though accidents can always happen and it is for this reason that Medical ID Bracelets should be used.

Suppose that you have an accident and you are rendered unconscious or are just unable to communicate the fact that you are taking blood thinners, how are you going to pass this important information onto any medical professionals that need to know this in order to treat you effectively? You cannot rely on the fact that someone will be with you, someone who knows you and knows what medication you are on. You need to communicate this information clearly and concisely; all emergency services are trained to recognise Medical ID Bracelets so wearing one could save your life.

Long gone are the days of the chunky Medical ID Bracelet, unless you want one like that of course. You can choose from many styles and fully customise the bracelet to meet your own needs. Metal, chain length, clasp style, bracelet style and link style can all be chosen so that you achieve an individual look. see: 14 k gold medical id jewelry

Once you have chosen the bracelet you can also have a custom engraving on it which should ideally contain the following information in simple language:

• Your name.
• Your Doctors contact number.
• Your medical condition.
• Any allergies that you have.
• The medication that you are on.

When putting this information together it is very important to check the spelling of your condition and the drugs that you are taking to ensure accuracy so that no confusion is caused.
Medical ID Bracelets make a great gift for you or for a loved one. It shows that you care and will help bring a little peace of mind in case of those situations that you cannot control.
