Some individuals have medical conditions that require treatment outside of the norm. Such conditions, while usually under control, can flare up at unexpected times. If the affected person is unconscious or unable to speak, there is no way for them to let potential rescuers know about their special treatment needs. This can result in them not receiving the necessary form of care or even receiving a type of drug that could prove fatal.
Emergency ID products provide a fast and effective way for first responders to know how to help those in need. Here are five such ways in which wearing an Emergency ID bracelet can save your life.
Seizures can be frightening for both the victim and the people trying to help them. There are several conditions that bring about seizures which require a particular form of treatment in order to help the victim. However, those in the grip of a seizure usually suffer such a violent reaction, they are not able to articulate how to help them.
An Emergency ID bracelet can include all of the information medical personnel need to provide the correct treatment quickly.
Most of us suffer from allergies, but some can have severe medical consequences, or even be fatal. A good example is those individuals who suffer from nut allergies. Reactions for them can be quite serious (e.g. anaphylactic shock) and require attention as soon as possible. Time wasted figuring out the right course of action reduces the chance of success.
An Emergency ID bracelet is especially valuable for a child. Even if their reaction does not lead to them becoming unconscious, most children cannot remember or articulate the information needed to help.
Mental Health Conditions
Certain mental health conditions can lead to people performing bizarre or threatening actions. If a person has forgotten to take their medication, bad complications can result. Their possibly criminal or violent behaviour may result in tragedy if law enforcement does not have the information they need.
Emergency ID bracelets can state the condition and medication requirements of the individual, allowing the situation to de-escalate through the acquisition and administration of the necessary drugs.
While penicillin proved to be a lifesaving invention, it was not suitable for everyone. In fact, some people have such violent reactions, a shot of penicillin can be fatal.
Penicillin is so widely used that some doctors make it their go-to response to certain conditions. However, an Emergency ID bracelet can warn them to choose an alternate treatment source for someone with a penicillin allergy.
Preserving Personal Beliefs
Some people have religious beliefs that prevent them from receiving standard medical treatments. For example, Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in having blood transplants. If someone from that faith has been in an accident, an Emergency ID bracelet can inform first responders and doctors that they do not wish a blood transfusion to be part of their medical care.
