Biotronik has launched its new online Travel Guide for patients with implanted Biotronik cardiac devices such as pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) or heart failure therapy devices. The Travel Guide gives patients information about recommended hospitals and medical centres in more than 100 countries around the globe.
The Travel Guide helps patients to be fully prepared when they travel, knowing that if they should encounter an unexpected situation related to their device, they can quickly and easily locate an expert who can offer them qualified medical care and support.
“With our new Travel Guide, we are looking to enhance our patients’ quality of life even further, offering information that allows for fast, easy-to-access medical care,” said Christoph Böhmer, president international, Biotronik.
The Travel Guide can be found in the patient section of the Biotronik website. To find a device follow-up clinic for Biotronik implants, the patient simply needs to select the desired country from the drop-down menu, types in a city, and the tool will give the patient information about the closest clinic and how to reach it.
The Travel Guide is currently available in English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese and Spanish and the list of clinics is continuously updated and expanded.
