Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Medical ID
Ehlers Danlos Syndromes (EDS) are a group of genetic disorders of connective tissue which vary in the ways they affect the body. Each individual’s experience of their EDS will be personal to them and, depending on the type of EDS, have different effects such as hypermobility and skin that breaks easily, digestive problems and fragile blood vessels or risk of joint dislocation
An EDS medical alert ID is essential to ensure that you receive the right treatment and diagnosis in the event of an emergency as it can speak for you when you can’t, making first responders and medical staff aware of your condition as rapidly as possible and facilitating a diagnosis of your emergency. Some symptoms such as localised abdominal pain may not appear serious unless the first responders or medical staff are aware of the increased risk of arterial or intestinal bleeding in EDS. The personalised engraving can also warn of associated risks, complications and any special care that you need.
There are lots of medical IDs to choose from so you can select the style that best suits you and your lifestyle, with choices from casual to more stylish designs. To help you choose, we’ve curated a Ehlers Danlos Syndromes range of medical IDs where you'll find ID cards, wristbands, necklaces and bracelets as well as handy medicine bags. Our bracelets and necklaces feature the well-known medical alert symbol and can be engraved with your details.
Our Ehlers Danlos Syndromes range includes medical IDs that allow you to engrave up to 5 lines of text so you can cover all your conditions, or you could choose to list additional information on a medical ID card.
All prices include free engraving and free UK mainland delivery.
What Should You Put on an Ehlers Danlos Syndromes Medical ID?
It is always best to consult with your doctor or specialist to decide what to engrave on your EDS medical ID. In the event that this is not possible, we have taken advice from the lovely doctors at Concierge Medical (the multi award-winning private GP service for the Cotswolds and surrounding areas) and recommend the following:
As a minimum, you should put the following on your EDS medical ID:
- Your EDS diagnosis.
- Life-threatening complications or risks, e,g. arterial/aorta dissection, rupture/organ rupture, pneumothorax.
- Your primary ICE (in case of emergency) number.
You may also want to include the following:
- Your name.
- Any other severe medical conditions (including allergies).
- Any medications you may be on.
- “See medical card” (if you choose to carry a medical ID card in your phone case or wallet).
If you choose a medical ID bracelet that can be engraved on both the front and the back, we recommend that you engrave your medical information on the front and your personal information (name and ICE) on the back.
General advice on engraving:
- Information should relate to conditions not otherwise discoverable by examination of an unconscious or incapacitated patient.
- Important medications should be listed.
- Information should be relevant to life-saving or emergency treatment.
- Avoid using general terms, e.g. “Allergies: bee stings, nuts” is much more useful than just “Allergies”.
Ehlers Danlos SyndromeWristbands
Soft, silicone wristbands are a popular choice for an EDS medical ID as they’re comfortable and convenient to wear throughout the day and evening, indoors and out. We have many different colours you can choose from with inside engraving or outside engraving and we also offer smaller wristbands for children. Our Velcro and Silicone ranges are great if you like to stay active.
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Bracelets
We also have a huge range of bracelets to choose from: from everyday wear to special occasions. Our pure links titanium bracelet is an elegant choice. Our modern medical bracelets with clasp are very popular with six colours to choose from and plenty of room for your engraving.
As well as our bracelets, we also offer watch style SOS Talismans that allow the wearer to write their details onto an information strip and store inside the SOS capsule, great for individuals whose details or medications might change frequently.
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Necklaces
If you would prefer to wear a necklace, our EDS dog tags offer a subtle and stylish way to display important data. Choose from brushed steel or coloured designs created for men and women.
It’s not always easy to persuade little ones to wear medical IDs so we have a great range of medical IDs for children: from colourful silicone bands to fabric wristbands and necklaces. Many of our engravable medical ID bracelets are also available in a variety of sizes from 5 inches (12.7cm) to suit even young children.
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Medicine bags and ID Cards
If you regularly carry medication, our medicine bags and carry cases are perfect for keeping your medication safe. They're also great for traveling and when you go on holiday.
As well as your EDS alert jewellery, it's also a good idea to have a medical ID card for your wallet or phone. This allows you to carry more detailed information with you, such as your address and NHS number. If you purchase one of our ID cards alongside a necklace or bracelet, we normally advise having 'see medical card' engraved on your chosen piece of jewellery.
