Wow, guess I never thought of no hiemlich. As if choking isn't scarey enough in the first place. I haven't heard of anyone else mention a bracelet but it does make sense.

I've had 3 with 3 different surgeons and no mention of a bracelet for me either. Having had some sebere dry heaving that I was expecting my shoes to come out, but no damage had occurred. I think that would be worse than the heimlich.

If I remember correctly the Linx brochure stated that I. D. Bracelet should say "No MRI". Also they gave us a wallet card. Don't remember anything about the heimlich. If it is a life threatening situation like CPR due to breathing , that would take precedence .

I have a wallet ID card for my Power Port but that is specific for no MRI. To the best of my knowledge this is the first time I have seen a question re this topic.
I would strongly suggest you call your Dr. and ask for the theory on why you need to wear the bracelet.  I am sure there is a very good reason so when you get the answer let us all hear from you.
