Why should a person receiving a chemotherapy use the MedicAlert medical identification tag?
Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment that is toxic to the cells in your body. It can cause memory problems, water loss, confusion, bleeding problems and other side effects. In an emergency, there are a number of drug interactions that may occur in patients undergoing chemotherapy. When side effects bring you to the emergency department, it is important to know the status of doctors and what drugs are part of your chemotherapy. Allow your MedicAlert medical identity to speak for you when you need it most. Join Now.
