Medical IDs for Insect Sting Allergies

Posted by Brittany Raum on Mar, Wed 25, 2015

Spring has finally sprung for most of us, but with the warmer weather and blooming flowers come buzzing and stinging insects like bees, wasps, fire ants, and hornets.

While most of us get redness, swelling, and discomfort when we’re stung or bitten by an insect, for those with an insect sting allergy, the stinging insect’s venom poses a more serious threat. This life-threatening reaction is called anaphylaxis.

Why Do I Need a DNR Medical ID Bracelet?

Posted by Tara Cohen on Mar, Mon 23, 2015

When an individual chooses to complete a Living Will or Advance Health Care Directive, s/he may opt to complete a form with his/her doctor called a “DNR Order” or, “No Code.” Every state has slightly different rules regarding DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) Orders, so it’s important to consult your physician and keep a copy of that document with your Advanced Directive or Living Will.

However, life-threatening situations do not always come about in the controlled environment of a hospital where we can have our documentation at hand. And those with DNRs are not strictly the elderly or infirm who are likely to find themselves in in-patient settings. Rather, many people living with chronic illnesses, life-limiting conditions, and untreatable diagnoses, in addition to those with religious objections, opt out of potentially life-saving rescue treatments through the execution of a DNR order. For this reason, wearing a DNR medical ID bracelet daily is extremely important. With your choice stated clearly on a medical alert bracelet or necklace, EMTs and other first responders will know that you’ve instituted a DNR and do not wish to receive life-saving treatment.
