Dyson personal Fans

 I have just bought a Dyson pure air personal fan for my bedroom. When I opened it there was a warning  for people with pacemakers that the fan itself and the remote were magnetic. As I planned to have the remote on my bedside locker and the fan about three or 4 foot away from me I wonder if anyone has any experience of these affecting their pacemaker. I have had my pacemaker now for three years, it is MRI safe and I’ve never had any problems with major surgery or any gadgets. However,  when I set the phone up I think my pulse rate dropped and I felt a bit uncomfortable.  It may have just been my imagination and the fan is amazing and I don’t want to send it back. Any advice please?

Just call the patient number for the company that made your PM, thats what it's there for

No problem

Fan or phone?  Neither are any problem and at four feet away is certainly OK.  Dyson, like most companies, is a law firm that happens to make something.

it's fine

If you feel asleep hugging half a dozen of the remotes, it might be a problem. 6 inches is the rule of thumb with anything questionable, but as Agent said, these are written by lawyers not doctors. It's a CYA world.

In fact after the final "tweaks" of my pacemaker programming at the one year check up it is working so well that I forget I have it.
