Do pacemakers and hearing aids get along?


Hearing aid for a pacemaker? *OR* a pacmaker for a hearig aid?

There should be no problem.  The hearing aid may have a pretty powerful magnet in it but it's so tiny that it's not going to affect the PM.  Any EMI (probably little to none) won't be a problem.  In any case, any of these questions should be asked of your EP.  He has the final say (if you'r smart).

Yes, they do get along OK if they are behind the ear type.

If you need a box/chest hearing aid, I think I would position it on the opposite side to the pacemaker and all will be well.
