TRAVELING WITH IMPLANTED HEART DEVICES

Most people with implanted heart devices can travel freely unless they are restricted by their underlying medical condition. With a Medtronic heart device, you can travel with the knowledge that support for your heart device is available in 120 countries globally. The key to traveling with confidence is to plan in advance. Before you leave on your trip, talk to your doctor about:

  • Specific care or activity recommendations
  • Steps to take if you experience discomfort or symptoms
  • Finding a heart center, emergency service, or doctor at your travel destination
Be sure to take your heart doctors contact information with you when you travel. Additionally, you can contact Medtronic Patient Services in many countries.
