It's perfectly safe. Some of them have magnets, but they aren't strong enough or close enough to the pacer to cause problems. 6" is the rule of thumb for anything questionable.

George,

You are amazing! Your birth year says 1870 with your pacemaker placement in 1950!

What an inspiration to all here 😜🤣

You know you're wired when...

You need to be re-booted each morning.
