Deciding what to engrave on your asthma or COPD medical bracelet can be challenging, especially if you’re worried that all the details may not fit.
Lots of customers feel that they are well supported by a simple straightforward approach. If you’re in this group, we have a range of standard message wristbands that are comfortable and washable:
But if you decide to go for custom engraving, you can include other condition details, medication information, or personal information. To give you a bit of help in choosing your custom engraving … we’ve analysed the engraving details of thousands of medical bracelets, and here’s what we learned:
1. “Asthma” is the most common engraving.
If you have asthma, you could easily explain this on your medical bracelet using terms like: asthma, asthmatic, severe asthma, or by explaining that you rely on particular medication. By far the most common choice is “asthma”. It’s chosen by 61% of people who have selected a custom engraving (in addition to all of the people who ordered standard wristbands).
It’s the shortest text … so you can fit other things on your bracelet. And it’s one of our standard engravings for bracelets and necklaces (which helps keep your jewellery as affordable as possible).
2. Custom engraving lets you list your other conditions.
Along with Asthma, 79% of our customers state that they have another condition. This is important as asthma can be bought upon by other conditions, so knowing what else you have can help medical workers to treat you better.
When you list multiple medical conditions or allergies on a medical bracelet, you’ll need to decide what order to put them in. It’s usually helpful to remember the ABCs of emergency care. Anything that affects your airways, breathing or circulation should come first. Also include particularly severe conditions, or anything that may explain why you are in a medical emergency.
If you need more help, it’s a good idea to talk it through with your doctor.
3. Be specific about other breathing or lung related conditions.
If you have a condition that affects your airways such as COPD, Bronchiectasis, Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease, or Subglottic Stenosis … it’s important to be clear about this on your medical bracelet. Some of these conditions are due to a physical difference in your body, and others need specific medicine or emergency procedures. So being specific with the details on your bracelet will give you the best possible treatment.
4. Name and phone number are a good idea.
Where customers choose a custom engraved asthma or COPD medical bracelet, many add extra personal information to help identify them or keep them in touch with their family. 22% of customers choose to add an emergency contact phone number. And 18% choose to add their name.
In conclusion, knowing what people actually engrave can help you decide what to engrave yourself. And it’s our mission to help you create the asthma or COPD medical bracelet that’s right for you. If you have any questions, or need a hand, please reach out on firstname.lastname@example.org
