A Simple Solution
If you or a loved one takes regular medication that plays a heavy role in keeping your body performing correctly, then you know how important it is to stay regular on that medication. In the event that you miss taking it, or you’re out and about, and you suddenly have an attack but don’t have your prescription on hand, it could very well be the end of your life. Or if you just so happen to be walking down the street and notice someone collapse on the street, you may feel compelled to help them, but you lack the knowledge of just how to do so. As a result, they may die.
These scenarios are both incredibly worrisome and could be potentially preventable with one simple solution. Engraved medical ID bracelets could be the answer to any medical emergency that may arise out of nowhere. Essentially, these bracelets have the individual’s name on them as well as a list of their medications. So, if someone has an allergy to something and they start to have a reaction to something, then you can easily look at their bracelet to see what they need to help them.
The same goes for a diabetic. If their blood sugar is dangerously low and they collapse, a quick look at their bracelet can inform someone of their condition. That person’s life could be saved all because they wore a medical bracelet that helped any passerby understand what they needed to help them.
These aren’t just simple ID bracelets either. There are even bracelets available that are, essentially, USBs. These USB bracelets have up to 2 GB of space on them, so the individual’s medical files and lists of medications can be uploaded to them. So, the next time an emergency arises, someone, or a doctor, can upload their USB to the computer, and they’ll have everything they need to know to treat the patient and save their life. These bracelets can help save lives.
