After gastric bypass surgery it's important to wear a medical ID bracelet to alert first responders in an emergency of our special post-op issues and rearranged guts. Some medical ID bracelets are so clinical looking and not something you would choose to wear on a night on the town. Lauren's Hope understands that the only way a medical bracelet is going to help save your life in an emergency is if you are actually wearing it. They make medical ID bracelets that are lifesaving but so pretty you will be excited to wear them.
I was headed to a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony last night and my Lauren's Hope Medical ID bracelet totally made my outfit! Check it out...
The medical tag with the important good stuff is clearly able to be seen when taking your pulse (EMTs are trained to look for them) but the bracelet is a stylish jewelry piece you actually want to wear or give as gifts. What a beautiful and thoughtful gift to give a loved one *hint hint to my loved ones reading*
I'm obviously oohing and ahhing over the chick styles but they have great styles for men and totally cute ones for the whippersnappers. Medical ID bracelets can alert first responders to lots of important information: food, drug, insect allergies, heart conditions, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy or seizures, certain medication you are on, etc. FYI most post gastric bypass bracelets say:
No Blind NG Tubes
Contact Phone #'s
My personal bracelet also has info about my allergy to Penicillin.
The Lauren's Hope Medical ID bracelet I'm wearing above is called Queen Anne's Lace, pink glass beads with accents of Swarovski pearls and sterling silver. The focal bead is a large Swarovski pearl nestled between 2 sterling silver bead caps. Classy holiday bling. I love it!
