Mediband Asthma Medical ID Bracelet
My four-year-old is severely asthmatic. She was diagnosed before she was even 2 (which is rare to diagnose before the age of 2). She was in and out of the hospital most of her second year of life and even spent a couple of times in the PICU which was super scary. It even got so bad that her pediatrician suggested I take her out of daycare. Not because of the daycare I had her in, but because her asthma attacks seemed to be brought on by sickness, like what would be considered minor colds in most children would turn into severe asthma attacks and eventually lead to pneumonia and linger much longer with her. This is one of the main reasons I decided to quit my full-time job as a nurse, so I could keep an eye on her and keep her out of daycare. Thankfully she hasn’t had a full-blown attack in over a year and a half, and we haven’t had any stays in the hospital!
She turns five pretty soon and will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall. I worry about this with her asthma, but have spoken to her doctor, and she thinks her immune system has had time to build up that she should do okay. If not we will consider other options, such as homeschool.
Anyway, I was recently offered an opportunity to review the Asthma Medical Id Bracelet from Mediband. They also have other medical alert bracelets and come in many sizes and several different colors. I will notify the teachers, nurse and everyone involved in my daughter’s care and give them her asthma action plan, but this little bracelet will give me a somewhat piece of mind. Sometimes it is hard to tell she is having an attack, and since it’s been so long since she’s had any trouble with asthma, she doesn’t fully remember. I hope and pray we stay on the same course, and her daily medications keep working.
This bracelet is discreet and doesn’t look like your typical medical alert bracelet. It is stretchy and made of comfortable waterproof silicone. My daughter was actually excited to wear it when I showed her and said it looked like some of the bracelets I have (I have several for cancer awareness and other causes) Its also easy to clean which is great for kids or those that are active.
It’s going to be hard letting her go to school in the fall, and of course, I will worry, but this bracelet will, at least, calm some of those worries.
