Kindle

Does anyone know if the Kindle is okay to use without it interferring? Also any other thoughts on interferences as I am knew at owning a pacer. It was put in in March and I am still not strong. My pacer deals with slow beats but my fast beats are the problem. I do so love all the learning I have gained from all of you. You are so supportive.

You should have no problems at all using your Kindle device. As with all wireless devices I would not hold it directly over my implant site but even then I doubt if it would cause a problem.

However, if you use headphones or ear buds with the device don’t put them in your shirt pocket or dangle them around your neck as there have been documented cases of interference from ear buds and similar.

A good internet source for more information can be found here:

Remember this site is a gold mine of real life information all available for the asking – don’t be shy if you have a question!

God Bless

I read 6 or 7 books on my Kindle in the last two weeks while I was on vacation, half the time it was in bed with it balanced on my chest, no problems! It's no different than a cell phone.
