A beaded medical alert bracelet is the perfect way to make a fashion statement while providing lifesaving information in case of an emergency.
Cool, funky, fashionable, and lifesaving? A weird combination but that is what beaded medical alert bracelets are all about. Not only do they make attractive style statements for men, women, and children, but also provide vital lifesaving information. Initially designed only for diabetics, these beaded bracelets now offer other medical information as well.

Importance of Medical Bracelets

Not many people realize the importance of having vital medical information, in hand, in case of an emergency. In a condition where every second counts, wearing the appropriate medical alert device can help inform the medical staff about your condition. This will enable a quick evaluation or resuscitation.
There are also cases when symptoms of common ailments may be misdiagnosed, for example, a diabetic who has passed out on a hot day may be treated for heat exhaustion while he may actually be in a diabetic coma. A brief description of the vital medical facts ensures appropriate care at the right moment.
All medical jewelry feature an official Universal Emergency Medical Alert Symbol designed by the American Medical Association (red, blue, pink, or engraved).
You can also choose to have an engraving of your choice giving vital medical information about medical conditions (Diabetes, Alzheimer's, Epilepsy, Autism), food or drug allergies, patient and / or doctor's name, contact phone number, or any special medical instructions for EMT's (Emergency Medical Technicians), doctors, or nurses.
Medical alert bracelets are also effective as a protection against potential medical errors which may occur at the time of admission and discharge from the hospital.
As a matter of fact, many emergency responders look for a medical bracelet or an emergency ID. By wearing medical jewelry you may actually save your own life. So regardless of the age or condition, medical bracelets are a must for everyone.
