The answer is an unequivocal yes! But first, what is a medical ID?
In short, it’s your lifeline in any emergency situation that renders you incapable of speaking for yourself, your ICE-TAGS medical band or medical bracelet becomes your voice in saving your life, and the voice that allows first responders and medical personnel the opportunity to make their commitment to saving lives truly worthwhile.
Your ICE-TAGS Medical bracelet or necklace gives paramedics and doctors the guidance they need to give you appropriate, timely diagnoses and treatment when you are unable to speak for yourself. Even if you are in a group of friends at the time of an emergency, you cannot rely on them to have the right information to give to medical personnel, it is your ICE-TAGS medical bracelet, band or necklace that tells the full story!
There are many good reasons to wear a medical bracelet, among them are food, drug or insect allergies, heart problems, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy and medicines you may be using. If you or a loved one have started the challenging journey into Alzheimer’s, dementia or have memory problems, wearing a medical bracelet is going to ensure that not only do you receive the proper medical treatment, but that you will be safely returned to your home and loved ones!
In a medical emergency, when you are unable to speak for yourself, a lack of medical information that would easily be available if you wore an ICE-TAGS medical bracelet can be as life threatening as the emergency situation itself!
Prompt diagnosis critical for effective treatment in an emergency will be delayed and symptoms of common conditions can easily be misdiagnosed, and considering that the majority of all medical errors occur because of mistakes made on admission or discharge from medical facilities, is it really worth leaving home without your medical bracelet?
….And finally, to the question about whether paramedics and medical personnel really look for, and count on, ICE-TAGS medical ID’s. The answer is, yet again, an unequivocal yes! 95% of first responders will look for a medical ID on the scene of any emergency, whether it is at the scene of an accident or in any other medical emergency situation!
There is every reason to believe that your life and the lives of your loved ones are worth all the protection available in a world that never gives us any advance warning of an emergency, your best defence is to go on the offensive and make sure that you never leave home without your medical bracelet!
