How To Protect Yourself If You Have Emphysema

By: Michael Derad

Emphysema can strike anyone at any age and unfortunately it is an irreversible degenerative condition.
You will have to learn to live with it for the rest of your life. An important part of easing the concerns a little bit are Medical ID Bracelets, for various reasons:
Normally a cocktail of drugs is administrated, and nobody knows what interactions with other drugs those might have during a medical emergency treatment.
Part of your treatment should be Pulmonary Rehabilitation which requires you firstly taking part in a group exercise programme under medical supervision but you will need to follow this programme up by exercising outside of a medical environment.
Medical ID Bracelets are looked for by emergency service staff particularly if you are unconscious or incapable to communicate with them when they are in attendance with you.
With a flare-up of your Emphysema symptoms it is very hard to communicate anything due to your shortness of breath so you have to have a way to communicate your pre-existing condition and medication to the paramedics that are treating you.
The bracelets can be and should be customized to your taste. You can choose frome different link styles and you can even add special medical alert symbol charms to the bracelet.
These bracelets are an perfect gift to yourself or a thoughtful present for a loved one. You want to get the information about your medical condition across as distinctly as you can. Both sides of the bracelet are inscribed and you should consider having the following information etched on it:
Your name.
Your Doctors contact number.
Your medical condition.
Any allergies that you have.
