The importance of carrying your ICD card with you should not be underestimated especially if you are going on holiday.
The arrhythmia alliance has produced an information sheet which should take some of the anxiety away when you go on holiday with an ICD.
The enclosed leaflet offers advice regarding medications, vaccinations, airport security and lots more besides!
It was agreed that at the next meeting (September 2012) the secretary – Sandra Davies – will bring along a laminator.
The facility will enable members to cover their cards in a protective clear coat to prevent damage to the cards.
