When you (or a family member) receives one of the implantable device types listed below, you will receive a device ID card. Your hospital will submit a device registration form to us and give you a temporary ID card. We will then mail you a permanent card within 30 to 90 days.
When you receive your permanent plastic ID card, check the information on it carefully.
If you do not receive your card or your card has any incorrect information on it, please contact us.
Always carry your ID card with you.
Your card shows the contact info of your physician or clinic (which those assisting you during an emergency would need to know). It also lists out MRI safety information.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires we maintain up-to-date patient records. By submitting your information, you agree Abbott may keep a record of your information and use it to respond to your requests.
Depending on where you received your device, you can update your information online, by phone, via email or through the Abbott representative in your area.
