Patient ID Card for Neurostimulation

As a recipient of a St. Jude Medical™ neurostimulation 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. 

  • If you do not receive your card within that period, please contact us using one of the means below. 
  • If the card contains any errors, please contact us so that we can correct our records and send you a new card.

Keep your information updated

We provide you with easy ways to be in touch with us to change the information that is on your device ID card, such as your name, address and doctor information.
