Will security devices that are located at entrances to stores, libraries and other public facilities affect my ICD?

You may walk through security devices and they should not affect your ICD. Simply walk through the area at a normal pace, but don't stand or linger nearby. Always carry your heart device ID card. This card is helpful if your heart device sets off a metal detector or a security system. If a handheld wand is used, ask security personnel to avoid holding it over or waving it back and forth over your heart device.
