Easy Ways To Stay Safe

Medical ID’s are a fantastic thing to have, no matter what kinds of medical conditions you have.  It is important to have some sort of identification on you if anything were to happen to you. (fainting, seizure, fall, injury, etc.)

Here are some tips!

American Medical ID has a huge selection of bracelets and necklaces online that can be custom engraved to say your name and anything else you want to add.

I personally have the silver one on the top left, but after wearing it for over a year the chain started to fall apart a little bit from all of the wear and tear, so a friend of mine actually made me a new chain that I was then able to attach the ID tag to, all it needs is a chain that has one clasp on each end.  So now it is a pretty and very useful accessory.

Another thing you can do, if you’re a little bit tech savvy, is to use a medical id on your iPhone.  If you have iOS 8, there is actually a health app right on your phone. It is a white square with a pink heart in the cornerIf you click on it, on the bottom right there is a button that says medical id.  Once you click on that, you can enter your information.

This information can even be accessed if your phone is locked, simply by sliding to the left and then pressing the emergency button which will be on the bottom left!
