My father has a subcutaneous holter, can he travel by plane?

Question: My father has a subcutaneous holter, can he travel by plane? Victoria (Seville).

Answer: The subcutaneous holter is a device that is in charge of monitoring the heart rhythm and registering the arrhythmias if they occur. There is no problem traveling by plane with the device and if you had any symptoms it would not be due to the device. If an arrhythmia occurs during the flight, the device will also be able to detect it. The only precaution that your father may have to take is to keep a report that proves the implant of the device in case they ask for it during the boarding control, since it is possible that if it passes through the detection arches, the alarm can go off.
