I have been reading the posts about I.D. bracelets. I think they are a very good idea. But, I wanted to make one suggestion: as well as having a ID bracelet, make sure that you also have a card on you at all times. I have a alert card that I make sure is visible at all times. I keep it hinged on my pocket book. It lists all the medications I am on as well as my conditions. If any thing should happen, the paramedics will need to know a lot : age, name, conditions and your medications. Always keep a list of them on you or with you at all times.

I have a Road ID bracelet that looks cool and has all the information on it. ER staff see my name and and code on it. They call or get online with the info and can see all my info. Now, that I think of it I may put the info in my backpack also in case of a national emergency, there may be no phone or internet.

Most of the ID companies give you one or two ID cards for your wallet. Most also offer some sort of online storage of important info as well where somebody can call a number or go online, put in a code that's on your ID and get access to all the info you put in.
