Wearing a Medical ID Bracelet for High Blood Pressure

Last Updated: June 30, 2021

If you have hypertension, wearing a medical ID necklace or bracelet means that, in an emergency situation, first responders who are caring for you can be made aware that your high blood pressure is not a symptom of an acute problem but rather your normal baseline.

If a first responder reads your engraved medical ID, they will know to pay particular attention to your heart while treating you, and they won't need to search for an immediate cause of your current high blood pressure reading.

Should I wear a medical alert bracelet for high blood pressure?

In short, yes, you should.

A medical ID bracelet can help first responders quickly recognize and account for your medical condition in the event of an emergency. Your medical ID should also note whether you’re on any medications and any additional conditions or allergies that could affect your treatment.

What should I include on my medical bracelet?

At Lauren's Hope, we custom engrave your medical ID with your vital health information. So when you're trying to decide what to engrave, we recommend starting with the information you would want someone to know if you were unable to speak for yourself.

We recommend that your ID include your name, diagnosis(es), medications, allergies, and emergency contact information.

Common medical abbreviations can help create more engraving space. Here are a few that might be helpful:

  • HBP - High Blood Pressure
  • HTN - Hypertension
  • HX - History
  • ICE - In Case of Emergency
  • ALGY - Allergy
  • NKA/NKDA - No Known (Drug) Allergies
