Just to let you know that my friend who I made in hospital has had to return his car bluetooth device as it interfered with his pacemaker and made him feel unwell as soon as he turned it on. He has an icd pacemaker.
Whoa... I went on a field trip to D.C on Thursday. Well, the first stop was the Holocaust museum. My mom chaperoned and she said she didn't think that the metal detectors would go off. They did, one big dude searched me with the wand thing, and let me go. Then we went to the National Archives. But that, I was smart and showed my card! Long story short- always show your card!
I've had my pacemaker for about 3 months now and had a strange thing happen the other night and wonder if anyone else has had this or was it just my imagination.
I was standing at the kitchen stove, about 3 feet away from the microwave with the microwave running - have been told by the pacemaker tech and others that microwave ovens were no longer a problem, I really wasn't worried about it, but while I was standing there I noticed a small vibration that felt like a slight "buzzing" in the c...
I have had my pacemaker for 1 yr now. My question is does any one that has a pace maker, does you shoulder burn like it is a strain on it where the pm is. I haven't had any more problems since I got the pm. I was just interest to know. How much weight are you suppose to pickup with the pm in anyway.
I would like some information on which hearing aids interfere and which ones are ok to use with a St.Jude Medical Identity ADx 5380, or where I could find this information. Tanks fo any help, Roberto 123
Ok, I heard from ela-girl that a Wii's infrared will interfere with a PM. I'm not doubting her, but I just wondered if it was true.
I recently applied for a Corgi online. When the lady called me to talk to me about adopting the dog, I had to ask her to call me back because, I had my telephone appt. to check my pacer. It seemed like as soon as I said pacemaker, I didn't get the Dog, I just wondered if they declined me because of the pacer...........I will get a dog again, when i am ready, but I wonder if these special organizations who only rescue certain breeds, would cut someone like me out for having a battery in me.......
HELLO...DOES ANYONE KNOW IF AN ELECTRIC MASSAGER IS OK TO USE WITH A PACEMAKER. MY HUSBAND BOUGHT ME ONE A WHILE AGO BEFORE ALL OF MY CARDIAC ISSUES. I LOVED IT. DO YOU THINK I CAN BRING IT OUT AGAIN??
For those of you who dont know it was reported by Reuters that a study at the Cardiovascular Institute at Michigan State University of the effects of IPODS on pacemakers concluded the following. In most cases an APPLE IPOD held within 50mm of the pacemaker for 5-10 seconds interfered with its functioning. Interference was detected also at 450mm. In one case a pacemaker stopped fuctioning altogether. No other IPODS were tested. But we must conclude from this study that we should not buy or use an...
Hi everyone .Can voltage cause a problem to pacemaker in a sign of a couple of palpatations Thank you all.
G'day! Can anyone please tell me whether it's still ok to ride a motorbike once the pacemaker settles in?
This was originally posted in Travel and Work forum - I'd like more commentary if possible, so I thought I'd post it under this category:
I am wondering if there are any electrical contractors out there who have a pacemaker and are working in a different work site or location every day. How do you manage the uncertaintly of magnetic field and electrical current levels if your job requires that you visit a different customer (sometimes power plants) every day?
I would appre...
I experience some sort of burning twtches & slight pain when I put my metal rimed eye glasses in shirt poicket above pace maker doctors cannot explain this . I have a "Neway "VDDR, Sorin PM. Has anyone experienced this effect? Keep well allyou paccers.
it is said that use of cell phones with bluetooth will interfere the functioning of pm.all modern handsets and cordless earphones are with this technolopgy.what can I do ?
I am a brand new member of this club, so do not have the benefit of past discussions. I wonder whether anyone has quantitative information on electric, magnetic and RF (radio frequency) field intensity thresholds for a St. Jude Medical Bradycardia pacemaker? I would like to have field strength limits in Volts/meter, Gauss, mW/cm2, etc., with associated frequencies. So far, I have been unable to get this information from St. Jude Medical.
G'day folks -
New member - 5 days into a dual stage rate adaptable device. Mighty sore shoulder, but no worries.
Question - it appears electric drills and other hand held electric devices are perceived to be okay to use, but what about my all-important Dewalt 18v cordless drill? Although a desk jockey (software officer), I can't imagine home life without my beloved drill.
All comments welcome. Thank you.
Having read about the new (still illegal here) cell phone jammers that cut off cell phone connections (not sure how works tho) does anyone know if these things will affect our PM/ICD's? Plan to ask my EP @ next check-up but that isn't until Jan. 2008.
Had a not great experience today. As I am 100% PM dependent I had to go thru a security to get into a work site I have not visited before. Not the airport. So I told the security guy that I couldn't go thru the walk-...
Does anyone know if it's OK to lay down on a heating pad for approximately 20 minutes at a time if you have a PM implanted
in the left chest pocket just below the skin? Will the electrical
field that produces the heat cause any damage to the PM or
the settings. I have the habit of using it when I feel like I'm coming down with a chest cold or get the chills?
I just bought a new wireless laptop (with radar to detect wireless networks when I'm out in the real world), because you know, I just can't wait to go out and get all hopped up on caffeine at the closest Starbucks and Google the heck out of my new wireless laptop! LOL! I also bought a wireless router to set up a WLAN in my house to share my broadband internet connection with my laptop.
As soon as I set everything up and got it turned on and connected, my pacemaker went crazy!...
I had been using a Polar heart rate monitor for years when going to Cardiac Rehab, Now that I have a PaceMaker I have wondered if it will effect the pacemaker. The Polar transmitter is a T-31 and is strapped around the chest and transmits a signal to a wrist receiver.
