leaving monitor at home

Thanks for the informations.  I have an Abbot monitor and it is not connected to my phone.  It is too large for a suitcase.  I am only leaving for 6 days and I think I will leave it at home.


Report in

My cardiologist said I can leave the monitor home up to a week when I travel. However-they want me to report to them that I'm going away. You might want to check with your own cardiologist.

I've been gone as long as 6 weeks without it. It will just report in when it senses we are back. No big deal unless you're getting down to the end of the battery. 

Fly Away

I am taking a 3-week trip back to Japan and of course, my Abbott monitor will stay home.  When I return my device will download I am told.  I have taken several 1-week trips and it always downloads upon return so this should be no different.  If you have a concern download the Abbott app but be advised it will give you to much data.  I took my app off my smartphone just too much data.

You know you're wired when...

You fondly named your implanted buddy.

I wasn't really self-conscious about it. I didn't even know I had one until around six or seven years old. I just thought I had a rock in my side.
