The No BP/No Stick Fistula Protector Wristband

There is a gap. As a Hemodialysis patient you may have noticed it, and thought, "What if I become unconscious or begin to bleed-out? Will Emergency Medical professionals damage my fistula arm while attempting to help me?" The answer is unfortunately, "Maybe."
What's more is that when you are in the hospital, accidents can happen. Dialysis patients are a small minority, and many Healthcare professionals may not notice or know what a fistula is. This could lead to mistakes such as blood being drawn or blood pressure cuffs being placed on your fistula arm which could cause your lifeline (fistula) to fail.
Hemodialysis access failure is a major cause of hospitalization and death. But, now there is something YOU can do. KidneyBuzz.com is working along with Healthcare Professionals, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Nurses, and Doctors to protect Dialysis patients' fistulas by looking-out for this No BP/No Stick alert wristband.
Now, we just need patients wearing them. Get your No BP/No Stick wristband to help ensure the protection of your fistula arm, and avoid painful fistula replacement surgery or worse.

"I had to go into the hospital unexpectedly and everyone was so impressed with my bracelet. They noticed it right away. The most comments I heard was that they needed to provide these for their patients!!!" - Amber Kane
“If you have Kidney Disease and have a Fistula you will need one of these wristbands for your safety. The nurses, and Blood people don't look to see if you have a Fistula in one of your Arms. It is a no-no and not safe for any thing to be taken out of that arm. Please if you go in Hospital wear this and be safe...I have been in hospital a lot and they see this and say good thinking .....Be safe and get one!" - Rose Smalldone
"I'm going to order one. The last time I was rushed to the hospital I was unconscious. When I awoke, the Dr's had cut through the fistula in my arm. Needless to say how upset I was..." - Elissa Mitchell
This is so cool. I got one. Very comfortable to wear. Love it! I encourage all the dialysis patients with fistula to have one. Cheers!! - Monika Pande
"I WROTE ALL OVER MY ARM ONLY TO FIND MY NEPHROLOGIST STANDING NEXT TO ME IN THE RECOVERY ROOM AND TELLING ME THAT MY FISTULA WAS DESTROYED DURING GALL BLADDER SURGERY. I spent three more days after that in the hospital (IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AN OUTPATIENT PROCEDURE) because I had to have a catheter put in my neck." - Debbie Anderson
"These things really work. Hospital personnel and first responders are trained to look for medic-alert i.d.'s and wrist bands. During my wife's last trip to the hospital, the staff took notice and knowing that she's a dialysis patient, asked if she had a graft or fistula in that arm. Had she not been able to speak for herself, this bracelet would have done the talking for her. Money well spent!" - Steve Boyer
What a great idea! I just ordered one! I am so afraid someone will mess up my lifeline if I become unable to express my medical needs! Thank you for this great product! - Christina Flynn
Thank you I had to argue with the medics and doctors not to place a saline drip to the wrong arm and check her blood pressure and yet they still need to be pig headed. - Ascary Morera
