Due to some structure issues with my larynx, I have a very hard time getting intubated even with a scope. Is a med alert bracelet recommended?

In brief: Yes..good idea

Hopefully you won't need intubation again, but have a med alert is a great idea if having any significant illness such as yours.
This allows/alerts the medics/docs/nurse to prepare/have adequate/appropriate equipment to intervene as rapidly as possible in case of emergency. Stay well... Best of luck..

In brief: MED ALERT NEEDED!

A difficult intubation can be life-threatening so if er/anesthesia have a 'heads-up' that could save your life.
In an emergency you may need a 'tracheostomy'.
