Do Atrial Fibrillation Patients Have to Live with Medical Bracelet?

Q: I’m an atrial fibrillation patient. Do I need to wear a medical bracelet in my daily life?

A: In all medical cases, the patient’s medical history is very helpful for further effective and timely diagnosis and treatment. AFib cannot be diagnosed immediately, so a medical bracelet saves the doctor’s time of diagnosis.

If you are taking anticoagulant medication (blood thinner), be sure to record the medications and doses you are taking. This AFib information in your medical bracelet will lead your doctor and attendant to a more specific way to save you in an emergency.

If you pass out in an episode of AFib and your families are not around you, a medical bracelet can help you a lot. It could play an important role in the process of saving your life.
