Had my first Medtronic 2-lead pacemaker implanted on my birthday (lucky me) in 2009, and had it replaced the day before Thanksgiving in 2019. Instead of the old style transmittal device, I was issued the new Medtronic wireless Home Communicator. I have experienced problems with breathing and sleeping since the new pacemaker was implanted. Yesterday, I unplugged the thing and have felt better since then. Tomorrow (Monday) I'll talk with my doctor over the phone to t...
I am trying to rehab my shoulder from a frozen shoulder and I just bought one of these -
It says on the box - don't use it with any kind of heart condition!

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.
PM tech suggested the inhibition was caused by either a faulty shower or ungrounded appliance. But I've checked with the owne...

Recent questions from members about haidressing have tended to be about driers etc. My concern is the clippers. I have to keep even fairly weak magnetic fields , e.g. from loudspeakers i mobile 'phones, away (so must always hold my 'phone to my RIGHT ear, and AC fields, e.g. from induction hobs, or welders are also likely to scramble the programming. I know the motors in hair clippers are very small, but is there any possibly that they could be a problem if they come very close t...

my manual from Biotronik speaks to electro magnetic interference and care to avoid. Airport scanners both walk through and hand held and the chain saw??? Does anyone have any experience with quality EMI measurement devices that might be worth using to measure the amount of EMI present?

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). So when my son gave me a wire-less computer keyboard, I became a tad concerned...The owners manual says 6 inches but what do they know...? Anyone have any inside poop on that issue? thanks & Merry Christmas, Electroboy
Hello can anyone tell me if it is safe to wear a smartwatch with a pacemaker.
I have a name tag which has a very powerful magnet to keep the name tag on my person. The magnet even has a warning to keep it away from a pacemaker. Is it safe to wear the name tag on the right side of my chest, the PM is of course high up on the left side.?
You know you're wired when...

I had a pacemaker since 2002 and ever since then my life has been a total blessing.
