Wherever you travel, your heart device monitors your heart and provides therapy whenever it is needed. You can travel knowing that support for your heart device is available around the world. Your doctor may also be able to check your heart device remotely, so it may be a good idea to let your doctor know when and where you will be traveling. Remember to travel with your device ID card. Your device manufacturer may also be able to provide a heart device travel card. This card states that you have an implanted heart device and informs security personnel how to properly scan your device with a handheld scanner. You can use this card, along with your heart device ID card, when you pass through security gates at airports and other secured buildings. A travel card is especially useful when traveling internationally.
