19 Stylish Medical ID Bracelets


Many people with chronic health conditions at some point in their life are faced with the question: Should I get a medical ID bracelet? Medical ID bracelets, first invented in the 1950s, feature an engraving of important medical information that first responders need to know in an emergency situation. If you’re unconscious or can’t communicate with them, this can be lifesaving, or at least help you get the right care faster.

Emergency medical technician Rod Brouhard explained in a blog that the most important things to have on a medical ID bracelet are medical conditions that could kill you and also make you unconscious, and “do not resuscitate” orders. You could also include things like missing organs, medications you’re taking that could cause harm, allergies to medical supplies, and rare life-threatening conditions. Some people also decide to include “in case of emergency” contact information.

If you’ve decided to get a medical ID bracelet, you might be feeling some mixed emotions — maybe you’re glad to have a way to keep yourself safer, yet also perhaps apprehensive about wearing this new piece of jewelry every day. It can help to find a bracelet that you love. Luckily, there are actually many fashionable options to choose from these days. You might even decide to have an “everyday” bracelet as well as “special occasion” or more trendy bracelets, so you can match them to your style.
