nail salon power drills
Hello. I am new to the PM club and happy to have found this resource!
I had a Medtronic 2 lead PM implanted on Halloween (trick or treat?). I went for an acrylic nail manicure and the power sander/drill seemed to have caused my heart to beat irreguarly, make my head swoon, and make me feel like fainting. After I stepped away, these symptoms went away but I still experienced mild palpitations for about an hour after. I read that these drills should be at least 12" away so that there is no EMI interference but arm's length is more than that. Any of you ladies out there have a problem with nail salons?
