October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. For those who have undergone breast cancer surgery and are dealing with lymphedema, it is important to be aware of the precautions you can take to keep yourself safe. If a medical emergency occurs, lymphedema alert bracelets can help you get the treatment they need promptly.
Lymphedema often results in swelling of the limbs. The lymph fluid that runs throughout the human body may gather especially in the lower extremities due to a cancerous tumor or treatment. This condition may not be noticeable at first if first responders are called to help them. Proper information from an alert bracelet can help them administer effective and safe assistance. It can prevent potentially harmful actions that may affect their cancer treatment process or the lymphedema itself.
What to Engrave on Lymphedema Alert Bracelets
The custom engraved tag on any medical alert bracelet must contain all necessary information to help emergency responders and physicians. Custom engraving should include lymphedema, breast cancer (or other cancer diagnosis), no BP left/right arm, no needles, etc.
If you have other medical conditions such as diabetes, heart problems that has you on blood thinners, or allergies, make sure those can fit on the bracelet as well. You should also include your full name and an emergency contact number.
