Medical Alert: Are You Prepared?

 

When you have gastric banding, a gastric bypass, or a gastric sleeve, your gastrointestinal anatomy is altered.  In emergency situations, it is especially important that these changes in your anatomy are communicated clearly to emergency medical personnel.  Without this knowledge, your rescuers could unknowingly cause you more harm than good. Join us and learn about the importance of medical alerts for weight loss surgery patients, the different medical alert options available that fit your lifestyle and the vital information your loved ones should know to help you in an emergency situation.



After this support group, patients will be able to:

  1. Discuss the importance and consequences of wearing or not wearing medical alert identifiers.
  2. Describe the different options available in medical alert identifiers.
  3. Verbalize the required information that medical alert identifiers and emergency contact persons should relate to emergency medical personnel.
