Carrying medical identification can speed up the time it takes to get a quick medical diagnosis on a patient's condition during an emergency trauma such as a car accident, airline crash, or public event and can be the determining factor on whether the patient lives or dies. Emergency personnel are trained to check many things to get their diagnosis, but the time it takes during the checking procedure can be eliminated if medical identification is available and noticed. “There is no time to waste” said Lifetag inventor Susan Eisen “and that is why there is really no choice.”
Many people resist wearing medical identification jewelry because they dislike the style or want to keep their medical conditions private. But wearing it can save their life and also be the number one reason they are diagnosed quickly in a hospital emergency room during a medical trauma. Many people do not have chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or allergies, but still take medication for various reasons that emergency personnel need to know about and can be valuable information to their medical team.
Wearing medical identification jewelry is not the only way to alert first responders to a person's medical condition. Lifetag, a company created by Susan Eisen, a jewelry designer with Type 1 diabetes, makes stick on medical Id to attach to a wallet, driver's license, insurance card, cell phone or keys for people who do not like wearing jewelry but need to be identified. Other products for non-jewelry wearers include key chains, zipper pulls, shoe tags, and wallet cards and these items are printed with the medical condition of the person carrying them. They are available for many medical conditions including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, C
