Why should someone undergoing chemotherapy wear a MedicAlert medical ID ?
Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment that is toxic to cells in your body. It can cause memory problems, dehydration, confusion, bleeding issues and other side effects. In a medical emergency, there are a number of drug interactions that may occur for patients undergoing chemotherapy. When side effects bring you to the emergency room, it is critical that doctors know your condition and which drugs are part of your chemo regimen.
