EKG-machines and pacemakers
Since I was told I have A-fib, I have looked for a device to tell me. I want to know more about the situations leading up to an A-fib incident, and to know when the incidents stop. I'm not able to pin it down on my own, without some kind of equipment. I've tried to make Medtronic make a device to give me a continous reading from the PM, but they don't seem to be interested.
However, I've found to small EKG monitors: ReadMyHeart and InstantCheck, from DailyCare. They're a poor substitute for a PM reader, but better than nothing. I've found them on Amazon, so I assume they are easily available. The first one is around 200$ and the other one 500$. Prices differ a bit, between the different dealers.
But there's a snag. In the manuals of both of them, there's a warning: "Not suitable for users with pacemakers".
I've asked the dealers to tell me why they are considered not suitable, but there's no answer.
So, do anybody here know why these EKG devices are considered unsuitable for PM users?
