A new Medical Device Awareness card has been launched which covers insulin pumps, CGMs and flash glucose monitoring devices including Freestyle Libre. Due to potential damage, manufacturers advise that the medical devices should not be exposed to x-ray screening or full-body airport scanners. Regulations allow passengers with these medical devices to ask for an alternative security screening process. The new card provides information for both the Security Officer and the passenger. It can be downloaded directly from the Civil Aviation Authority website: https://www.caa.co.uk/Passengers/Before-you-fly/Am-I-fit-to-fly/Health-information-for-passengers/Passenger-health-FAQs--At-the-airport/
