Had pacemaker 3 years ago. Having flown yet. Is there anything to be aware of ? Thank you
No need to tell the security people you have one, just go through security like everyone else. They do not trigger either the normal security arches or the newer "imaging" booths, and your pacemaker will not be affected by them. However, always carry your pacemaker ID card. Avoid airlines with outdoor toilets.
The only thing to be aware of, and you'll probably never see it, is the wand style metal detectors. They shouldn't be used above the waist. Tell the security person and show your card if necessary. These are common at public events but are used, rarely, at airports too (particularly overseas) if all of the other scanners are down.
Avoid airlines with outdoor toilets.OUCH!!!
Andy. Your one in million.
You will be airborne. That's it. I hope you have a great trip and hopefully it's for something fun.
You know you're wired when...
You have a T-shirt that reads Wired4Sound.
We are very lucky to have these devices.
