Medical Barcode Dog Tag


How do you "read" it? Most smart phones can download FREE apps that read (scan) CR/QR codes or barcodes alike. Download the app on your phone and aim it at the CR code and it will translate.

The purpose of a medical ID is to alert paramedics and EMT's to a patient's specific medical or allergic condition at the point in time when they're about to administer emergency treatment. It's certainly critical for persons whose illnesses might render them unable to speak to wear a medical ID bracelet or medical ID tag, but anyone involved in a traumatic incident like a car crash could be in a state of unconsciousness when help arrives.

The goal is for the patient to receive proper treatment without delay, and to help ensure that she won't receive a medication that she's allergic to. It's commonly said that a medical ID speaks for you when you're unable to speak.

There are four pieces of information that generally need to be engraved on a medical alert tags:

1) diagnosis or condition

2) allergies (if any)

3) patient's name

4) emergency contact.

There are also things that aren't needed, such as the patient's address (unless they have dementia) and social security number. Most of your personal information can be included in the CR code and not visible unless a CR reader is used.

The tags come with an aluminum chain 30" long.

The tags measure 1.125" X 2" and are .045 thick. Made from aluminum to resist rusting. The tag is printed with the design on one side, the back side is plain aluminum.

Sublimation printing is an amazing way to create bright, professional looking products.

The science behind sublimation printing is simple -- when heated to a high temperature, the sublimation ink turns into a gas, allowing it to enter into the open pores of the polyester-coated item. Once removed from the ink, the pores of the item cool and close up, trapping the ink (and image) inside the surface of the item. The sublimated image will be smooth to the touch and is a permanent application.


Please be aware that your item may be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about customs clearance - customs laws make the importer (the buyer - you!) responsible for these fees.
