I'm scheduled to receive an ICD in a few weeks and looking for a solution to a potentially career ending problem. I work in a die shop and have been told that I will not be able to be around surface grinders due to the magnetic fields around the magnetic chuck when energized. This is a substantial part of my job. Anyone else with a similar situation and is it possible to wear something over the area to shield the implant from EMI(copper)? Also whether or no...
so kind of a stupid question, but i'm getting a new bed and the bed frame is of steel and before i purchase it, i wanted to know if the steel will interefere with my pacemaker or will it be fine? anyway some feedback would be greatly appreciated :)
Anyone have any info on the Nuwave oven as being an issue to a pace maker?
My name is Santiago and i've had a pacemaker (Medtronic) for a while now but i still don't fully understand the limitations that this implies. As my cardiologist always told me, i have to keep my cellphone away from my chest and on the other side pocket of my pants, i don't know why is this but i do it anyways.
Today i've bought a fitbit that tells me my heart rate all the time but it vibrates with notifications, i wear it in my left hand and i'...
Hi everybody, I'm pretty new to this club. My little boy (10 months) has a Pacemaker fitted and is starting nursery next week. They have asked for some advice on toys that he shouldn't play with, our cardiologist said nothing electronic. Does this mean nothing at all with a battery?
Thank in advance for any advice at all.
I went to the store with my girlfriend earlier to buy an iphone 11, and the seller told us that all recent phones from any maker use induction... the last iphone without it is the iphone 7. I know that we have to stay away from induction stove, like at least 50 cm... but, what about mobiles with this new technology? If it is not connected on the charger, the induction is probably not working (and the mobile case use induction as well...!)?
Is there a risk of interference to pacemakers from "EZPass" devices (and the like) that are mounted in the car and automatically collect highway tolls?
I recently purchased Bellababy Electric Breast Pump. Just wanted to know, does it by any chance interfere with the working of a pacemaker? I have a dual chamber Medtronic pacemaker.
Hi there Crusty & Ian,
Yabba dabba doe I’m reborn!!!
I managed to consult another cardiologist and laid down my casus to him verbally knowing that before I was allowed in his office he had already absorbed all details etc. I hoped.
Explained to him that when cycling my PM blocked further activities when coming into the 145 BPM zone.Also the pace was exceptionally slow!The upper limit was 170 BPM.
Hi anybody out there doing welding?
I recently purchased a Phonak TV Connector to be used with hearing aids. The user's manual warns that it may generate magnetic fields that would influence pacemakers. Has anyone experienced such interference with pacemakers? If so, what type of issue might occur?
When I am near our combination modem/router I start to experience a pulsing sensation just under my left breast. It is not a steady rhythm. It is just hard enough to be annoying, but not painful. Could the Wifi be causing this? I have experienced it at other times, but it seems to be worse when I am near the modem/router.
I have used a pacemaker for eleven years and a Constant Positive Airway Passage machine for Sleep Apea. I recently received a new machine which used small but powerful magnets to secure the head gear. I occasionally pull the mask off in my sleep and am concerned that these magnets might affect my pm. Any comments?

With a biventricular pacemaker ,the device is working all the time.I am about to buy a battery operated neck massager for a severe neck injury.Some opinion says no to this,other opinion says ok but keep away from the pacemaker by 4-6 inches.( Are manufacturers just covering themselves in case of a problem)?
Does anyone know if it is advisable to play electric guitars with a pacemaker?
Weirdest thing- so when I am next to our baby monitor (it is a cheap walkie talkie type thing) it cuts out but when my hubby is next to it, it works fine!
Anyone experienced this with monitors? I stay 6 inches away from it but I do have to be close to it so I can hear baby if she starts tossing and turning :-)
I have a stereo system with large speakers and want to know if I can still safely play music on it without interference to my pacemaker.
Hi really appreciate all the information from members Nice not to feel alone Just received pacemaker May 5 Question does revivite foot leg massager interfere with a pacemaker I enjoyed the revivite but am hesitant to use it thanks Trebla
Hi. I have a dual lead Metronic Pacemaker implanted August 2017 for total heart block.
I try to stick by all the rules regarding risks with any equipment that could interfere with my pacemaker. However I recently purchased a new electric toothbrush which is apparently electromagnetic. In the enclosed instructions it advises to consult your doctor or manufacturer of the device if you have any questions about a cardiac pacemaker or other implanted devices. Just wondered if any member...
You know you're wired when...
You can finally prove that you have a heart.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
