According to the American Heart Association, over 103 million Americans are living with hypertension, more commonly known as high blood pressure. If you’re one of them, it’s important that you actively manage your hypertension with medication and lifestyle changes. It’s also critical that you wear a medical ID.

If you’re in an accident or medical emergency, your ID will immediately alert emergency personnel to your condition. First responders are trained to look for a medical ID and to contact MedicAlert. When they do, MedicAlert’s 24/7 response team will relay your complete emergency health profile to the people caring for you. With knowledge of your condition and the medications you’re taking, emergency personnel can provide you with the best possible care. They won’t waste precious time on an incorrect diagnosis – or possibly administer a dangerous medication or treatment.

MedicAlert is a small investment that pays big dividends in quality of life.

Benefits of a MedicAlert ID and Membership
for people living with hypertension:

  • We’re Your Voice: If you can't speak for yourself, MedicAlert informs others about your hypertension and medications you’re taking. This is especially important because blood pressure medicine will affect any emergency treatment you receive.
  • 24/7 Emergency Protection: Our team will relay your critical medical information to first responders in an emergency, no matter where or when it happens.
  • Stay Connected: No one should be alone in their moment of need. MedicAlert will reach out to your emergency contacts when needed if you are unable to do so.
  • Peace of Mind: Enjoy the freedom to live your life with hypertension, knowing that MedicAlert is there for you when you need us most.
