Medical IDs and Kidney Failure

MEDICAL IDs FOR

Kidney failure bracelets or kidney failure jewelry is probably the last thing on anybody's mind when dealing with kidney failure or chronic kidney disease. After all, bracelets, necklaces and anklets may not seem to serve any purpose beyond being decorative. However, when it comes to chronic diseases like kidney failure, being identified as having this medical condition is often necessary.

This is why kidney failure bracelets are often worn to alert people, such as rescuers, first-aid staff and medical professionals of the appropriate action to perform when the wearer is involved in an emergency.

Knowledge Can Save a Life

When kidney failure patients were first encouraged to wear kidney failure bracelets, some people were not very supportive of getting "tagged" as having kidney failure or a kidney condition. However, the fact that the bracelets were medical alert tags and could make the difference between life and death quickly showed why it was a necessity. Today, even with modern technology, it still is.

Kidney failure or chronic kidney disease requires special medical care and attention, especially if the patient is on hemodialysis or has had a transplant. In some emergencies, the person with kidney failure may not always be able to speak or communicate. He or she may even be unresponsive. Furthermore, an emergency may occur when a relative or a friend who has knowledge about the person's kidney failure may not be around. In these cases, a kidney failure bracelet can silently inform the attending medical personnel of the disease.

Preparing for an Emergency

Kidney failure can be a tricky and problematic condition to have, as EMS providers are frequently called on to care for chronic kidney failure patients, both between and during dialysis treatments. Having a kidney failure bracelet will let the medical staff know how to make the appropriate medical decisions that can save your life. In case you are in an accident, it is important to be able to communicate any medications that you may be taking for your kidney condition so that you are not given a medication that will cause a problem.

Always ensure that you or your loved one is wearing a kidney failure bracelet at all times and especially before leaving the house. If necessary, pack an extra bracelet during special trips, particularly if you will be travelling alone or leaving town for an extended period of time. Always wear the bracelet where it can be spotted easily and avoid taking it off. New designs won’t cramp your style and it can mean the difference between living a healthy life and suffering serious medical consequences.
