What to engrave on Medical Alert tag for LVAD recipients?Sun, 07/27/2014 - 12:03AM
Hello, I have put off getting a medical alert tag for a while now, but now I want to travel more and spend more time enjoying my good days. I always want to be as prepared as possible because I know it helps if activities and possible scenarios are thought through.
I want to get a medical alert tag and have read they usually have room for 5 lines with 20 characters including spaces. The common set up is:
Line 1: Name
Line 2: medical condition or reason for tag
Line 3: allergies or special instructions
Line 4: med list or special medication
Line 5: ICE#. Usually Supporting Dr.
I would love to see suggestions from folk who have LVADs so I can make it as clear as possible. I am traveling to places where LVADs are practically unheard of and need my tag to be very concise.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
