Answer

Patients and families should be given instruction and educational materials to enable them to understand FVII deficiency, to recognize the symptoms and signs of bleeding, and to identify emergency situations.

Patients should know how to contact their treatment center for immediate treatment, and they should know where to receive emergency care.

Patients should wear a MedicAlert bracelet or carry other identification showing their bleeding disorder and recommended therapy.
