Medic Alert Necklaces - Do You Need One?

medic alert necklaceMedic alert necklaces can save lives - it's as simple as that.

In the words of an excellent advisory from the Ohio State University Medical Center, in a document titled "How to Help Someone Having a Seizure": "It is important that any person with seizures wear a Medic Alert necklace or bracelet in case a seizure occurs in public."

Similar words come from Karen Mayry, President of the National Federation of the Blind of South Dakota:

I feel that the use of a Medic Alert necklace or bracelet is necessary to our well being. It is a natural symbol notifying others that we have special needs regarding our health. The Medic-Alert organization keeps an individual's personal medical history on file with a toll-free number to call engraved into the necklace or bracelet. Emergency room doctors, who may have never seen you before you arrive, unconscious, can call this number and access this information. It can help save your life.

In fact, health professionals are trained to look for such medical ID. So it means that, if you have one of many life-threatening conditions, in the event of an emergency your condition will be swiftly recognized, and the correct procedures can be initiated.

It is said that numerous medical errors occur because of faulty diagnosis of a patient's true condition. This risk can be minimized by wearing a medic alert necklace.

The famous MedicAlert organization manages the sale of necklaces in a variety of styles (one is pictured above), including what it calls its Designer Collection.
