Allergy Doctor | 3 Ways a Medical Bracelet Can Save Your Life

 

Allergy Doctor | You may view medical bracelets as a thing of the past but the lifesaving benefits that a medical bracelet can offer those patients with food allergies are priceless. If your allergy doctor has recommended wearing a medical bracelet due to your food allergy consider taking their advice seriously. Here are 3 ways that a medical bracelet could save your life in the event of an emergency:

It’s Specific

A medical bracelet will not only tell those trying to help you what kind of food allergy that you have but it can be tailored to fit your specific needs. A general statement about having a nut allergy may not be that helpful for someone who is only allergic to a few key nuts. A medical bracelet is important to wear if your allergy doctor has stated that you have a food allergy that is very specific. Wearing a medical bracelet is important in being able to communicate that allergy to someone in the event of an emergency.

Emergency Contact

Your medical bracelet can be customized to have the name and phone number of an emergency contact. This can be very helpful for not only those who help you in the event of an emergency but also the hospital staff who need to contact your family. Having your emergency contact information on your bracelet will save time and worry for those who love you most as well as provide information to medical staff that may just save your life.

Sends a Clear Message

If you are dining out and ask the wait staff about possible allergens they may take your more seriously if you are wearing a medical bracelet. The message that a medical bracelet sends is that you have a serious condition that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Having one that is easily accessible on your body is key to getting lifesaving treatment should an allergy attack occur.

If you or a loved one has a serious food allergy consider getting a medical bracelet that could easily help to save their life. Your allergy doctor at the local National Allergy and ENT office should have resources of where to order this important life-saving device.
