Pacemaker Shielding Materials

Please help!

I've had a Medtronic Advisa for the past 9 years. For the past few years all has been well. But late last year my PM check-up showed a 30 second pacing inhibition. When it occurred I was staying at a large rented property that my husband runs a classical musical festival at. I've been there twice a year for 5 years with no incident.

wireless keyboard & mouse-Microsoft nine-hundred

Greetings from a Newbee... I, of course, have become watchful & wary of other electronic devices I may be around- Heck, I even wrapped Alum-foil around my "Smart-meter"(it's under my bedroom window).

Anyone have any inside poop on that issue?  thanks & Merry Christmas, Electroboy

Radio Frequency Facial

Evening,

I have booked a Radio Frequency facial and just discovered that apparently RF interfers with the pacemaker.

I am struggling to understand why a RF wand on my face will interfere with the PM?  This is not a super strong RF as it is a beauty treatment.

Anyone had any experience of this?

Thanks

Quick question .....

I am having a precautionary nuclear ☢️ stress test .

not really because of symptoms and mostly because I think it makes sense (I've also met my deductible this year ) as I have had artery issues in the past. 

ive had several tests before .... I know the radioactive tracer stuff is harmless or at least low risk .

what about the camera they use ? I think it's a gamma camera?  Any concerns there for a pacemaker implanted patient ?
