Patient ID Cards for Traditional Neurostimulation Systems
As a recipient of a St. Jude Medical™ spinal cord stimulation (SCS) system, you will receive an ID card that contains important information related to your device. When you first receive your device, you will receive a temporary ID card. We will then mail you a permanent card within 30 to 60 days.
Carry your ID card
Always carry your ID card with you.
- The card includes your physician’s or clinic’s contact information, which those assisting you during an emergency will need to know.
- When you go through security checkpoints at the airport, you will need to show your ID card to security personnel and ask how best to proceed. If you must go through a metal detector or antitheft device, turn off your neurostimulator and proceed with caution, moving quickly through the device. Once you pass through the detector or device, be sure to check the status of your IPG.
Verify your information
When you receive your permanent plastic ID card, which should be within 30 to 60 days of your surgery, check the information on it carefully.
