Medical Device ID Cards
Pacemaker, Defibrillator (ICD), and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) Devices
Whether you’re going away for the weekend or running a quick errand, it’s important to carry your Medical Device Identification Card with you at all times. In an emergency, the card will alert medical and security personnel that you have an implanted device.
You will be given a temporary Medical Device ID Card after your implant procedure and Boston Scientific will mail you a permanent card about six to eight weeks after your implant.
Your Medical Device ID Card contains your name, your doctor’s name and phone number, and the model numbers of your implanted device and leads.
