While waiting for my doctor to respond I thought I'd ask you experts... So I was plugging in my laptop charger into the wall outlet and I got an electric shock that reached my elbow. Is there any way that could cause my pm to malfunction?
First post, 24 hours out of pacemaker installation! Had less time to wrap my brain around having it done, this was a complete shock to me. Anyone have any information about Drone use? Since my phone hooks up to my remote control and they both interact wirelessly with each other along with multiple satellite use....anyone have any negative physical experiences? (Mavic Pro). Suggestions?
I've had my pacemaker for about 3 months. It's very prominenent under my left clavicle. I'm thin and athletic. Was this the best spot to put it? A friend of mine has his deeper and lower under the pectoralis muscle. When I lie on my side it pinches sometimes. Also I feel it during my golf swing sometimes. Is this the most common site; just under the clavicle? Why do you think the MD chose that spot over the other?
Thank you for paying attention to my inquiry.
I found a very good apartment and want to move there, but the owner told me there is no gas stove, and they have only electric range/stove.
I know induction cooctop (IH) affects pacemaker, but my question is, does electric range also affect it?
Since I've had some troubles with my device, I really want to avoid anything that could affect it egatively.
I would appreciate if you could share your opinion about it.
I haven't been around here long enough to even call myself a noob, so pls forgive my two issues and in two days.
Second only to my bicycling, I work with electrically - powered hand tools in my shop. I'm familiar with all the cautions listed in the literature and accept that most ordinary shop tools do not present much risk particularly if one observes the precautions.
That said, I still wonder if anyone manufacturers any garmets that would shield my pm from EMI...
I am new to PM and this site, having had my first pm implant the day before yesterday.
I'm a life long bicyclist, my average mileage for the last ten years is about 100 miles/wk.
I use a Garmin edge 520 along with a variety of belts that snap around my torso with the pick ups quite close to the pm incision.
The only literature I have found thus far, addresses the pm's effect on the HR monitor. About which, by comparison, I am hardly concerned at all.

I'm now 3 weeks post implant. I decided to get out my hunting clothes since the season is fast approaching, the majority of my warm clothes are made by Drake, and they have a magnetic closing pocket over where my device is. I put one on this a.m. for my morning walk. I was surprised that suddenly my chest started to make a audible tone! Went to call Dr. Office, took off jacket and the noise stopped, Dr. Office explained that it was normal and my device was just war...
I have the Biotronik Eluna 8 pacemakser and Mri resitant leads. I cannot find information if my device is competable with the ‘Alpha Stim’. I want to use the Alpha Stim for the depression, anxiety and sleep problems I have. I already contacted Biotronik. I received the standard leaflet. The Alpha Stim is not on there.
On the site the following warning can be found:
Alpha-Stim may affect the operation of implant...

that no one mentioned avoiding battery powered shavers.
I've recently used my mobile phone against my left ear (done this 3 or 4 times now) and have noticed that the phone battery drains and goes dead within seconds. This doesn't happen when i use the phone against my right ear.
Has anybody come across this and does anybody know whether this is detrimental to my PM
About these scanners. Adelaide, South Australia only has old type. So on Sunday I take daughter to catch a flight and after reading here that it is no big deal to go through scanner I though I would just do it. I had my card in my hand ready to explain in case I 'beeped'. A female officer stopped me, asked if I had a pacemaker. She then said I could not walk through and would have to have the 'pat down' (which I have always had previously.) ...
I am 19, and have had an ICD since I was 15. I haven't had many episodes since. Recently I've gotten another MRSA boil on my breast right above my pacemaker. My immune system isn't at its best and this will be not the first time I've had MRSA. Is the location of this boil to be worried about? I am not sure what to think and do not want to worry myself. I am trying to get an appointment with my primary but they have yet to get back to me.
Have a question about wrist BP cuffs. I went to get my eyes checked today. The young girl put a wrist BP cuff on me and told me to place my wrist on the left side of my chest.

Anyway it didn't take the first time so she took it off and put it back on an had me place it directly over my device. I told her I just didn't feel comfortable h...

Does anybody know how an Electromagnetic pulse would affect a person with an ICD. I am scheduled for an implant on November 01,2017 and am getting cold feet based on the increased risk that North Korea has the ability and the motive to set off an EMP.
