Lifetag Medical Id Creator Recommends the Fastest Way to Speed Up A Medical Diagnosis During a Disaster is To Carry Medical Identification

El Paso, Texas (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

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, Coumadin patients, people on dialysis, alzheimers patients, do not resuscitate requests and others.

     "Carrying medical identification ensures a faster diagnosis in an emergency situation and can save the life of the victim" said Ms. Eisen. "It is imperative that when someone is at home alone or travelling alone they have medical information on them to notify first responders. A friend of mine suddenly collapsed while walking her dog and was taken to the hospital as Mrs. Jane Doe because she had no medical identification on her." Ms. Eisen continues that her friend's family could not be notified until they knew who she was. "It was for that reason that I realized everyone is not a jewelry wearer, and medical id needs to be available in all forms for all kinds of people and for many non-chronic conditions" she said.    

     Lifetag has been available online since the late 1980's helping people with medical conditions and contributes a portion of each order to its Lifetag Fund to help health charities in the El Paso area. For more information, consumers, nurses, medical professionals, hospitals, and doctors can call 1-888-Lifetag for brochures about their medical identification products.
