Sickle Cell Medical ID
Do You Need A Bracelet or Medical ID For Sickle Cell?
Sickle cell disease, also sometimes known as sickle cell anaemia, presents a range of symptoms and sometimes causes health complications that may not be immediately obvious or easy to diagnose in an emergency. Wearing a sickle cell disease medical ID alerts first responders to your condition, giving them an insight into your health and assisting them in diagnosis.
A medical ID is the best way to communicate if you are on your own and unable to speak for yourself. Our bracelets and necklaces feature the well-known medical alert symbol and can be engraved with your details, so they can speak for you when you can’t.
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 sickle cell disease 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.
All prices include free engraving and free UK mainland delivery.
What Should You Put On A Sickle Cell Disease Medical ID?
It is always best to consult with your doctor or specialist to decide what to engrave on your sickle cell disease 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 medical ID:
Sickle cell disease.
Any medications that you take.
Your primary ICE (in case of emergency) number.
You may also want to include the following:
Any other severe medical conditions (including allergies).
Any other 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”.
Sickle Cell Wristbands
Wristbands are a popular choice for a sickle cell disease 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.
Sickle Cell Bracelets
We have a huge range of bracelets to choose from: from everyday wear to special occasions. Our Celtic knot bracelet is an elegant choice and comes in a choice of five different finishes. Our modern
medical bracelets with clasp are also a popular choice 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.
Sickle Cell Necklaces
If necklaces are more your style, be sure to check out our sickle cell disease dog tags, offering a subtle and stylish way to display important data. Choose from brushed steel or coloured designs created for men and women.
Our SOS Talisman and Infomedic necklaces are also a convenient way of keeping details of your condition with you at all times. Keep your data safely tucked away inside the unique pendant.
It’s not always easy to persuade little ones to wear medical IDs so we have a great range of sickle cell disease 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.
Sickle Cell 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 sickle cell disease 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.
