Being a Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) parent can be overwhelming and stressful at times. Like any other parent, we want to keep our children safe wherever they are. While it is hard to imagine that our little bundle of joy will ever be in an emergency, it is still important to be prepared for them, in the event the unexpected happens.
Having your child wear a medical ID bracelet or necklace is a simple gesture that can offer you comfort and peace of mind.
“I have had much more peace of mind knowing that my son, Joshua, who was born missing one chamber of his heart, has a medical ID bracelet” – Jodi Lemacks, National Program Director for Mended Little Hearts and longtime customer of American Medical ID.
Medical Identification tags or medical ID for short is a piece of jewelry that could save your child’s life. It allows your child’s medical conditions, drug and food allergies, prescribed medicines and emergency contacts to be engraved onto the surface of a medical ID bracelet or necklace.
While adults usually wear stainless medical IDs, fun and colorful medical IDs are available for kids to choose from. Kids can be hesitant in wearing medical IDs but we have found that hesitation disappears when they’re fun and they can choose the design, including kids’ character medical ID bracelets.
