    If you live with a chronic medical condition, here's what a MedicAlert medical ID bracelet can do for you:

    • Communicate your medical needs in an emergency.
    • Speed time to diagnosis and treatment so you get faster, better care.
    • Avoid costly tests or harmful medical errors.
    • Keep you connected with loved ones.
    • Give you invaluable safety and peace of mind.


    We asked the American College of Emergency Physicians this question. Per ACEP, the medical information on your bracelet should be in order of priority for EMS to make a quick diagnosis. They suggested:

    1. Allergies - severe ones
    2. Medications - ex. blood thinners, beta blockers
    3. Medical conditions
    4. Implanted medical devices - ex. pacemaker
    5. Other important info


    Yes, first responders are trained to look for medical ID bracelets. The first place they look is your wrists, and then your neck.

    That's why medical ID bracelets are so popular - and so effective! Because first responders know and trust MedicAlert, you receive faster, better care. Protecting yourself in an emergency is easy with a medical alert bracelet.


    Traditional medical ID bracelets are engraved with your personal info. Sometimes, you're limited by the space available for engraving. QR code medical bracelets have a scannable code that connects to your full MedicAlert health profile. First responders have instant access to your detailed medical info, helping them make even faster, better decisions about your care.
