Hello Everyone, I have a medtronic pacemaker and travel to healthcare organizations across the country. Due to the uptick in violence, many of them have installed metal detectors. I have been able to avoid, but I don't want my colleagues to know or ask questions. Is there a card I can show them or is it necessary to avoid them?
Thank you so much once again.
Thank you Everyone. I don't go on the wildest rides, and now I feel comfortable exploring a bit...
Hello, I am going to Universal Studios in 2 weeks. I have a medtronic pacemaker and I am wondering if it is safe to go on rides.
Hey people, just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Chris from North London U.K. I'm 50 and I've had a pacemaker for roughly 32 years.
I found this place as I was googling about interference from music equipment and found an interesting post here so thought I'd join the clan.
im a scratch DJ who goes under the name of Maker. I'm buying a bass guitar tomorrow and worried about interference. I've had a little google around and it sa...
I'm just a new recipient of an ICD and a having difficulty getting any detail about possible interfaces around heavy jet aircraft. I'm not planned to return to work for another 10 weeks or so, but am looking to see if there are any other AMEs, LAMEs, A&Ps etc in the club. Even the manufacturer Medtronic, admits they have very little detail about my work environment and effects it may have on the device. I asked about aircraft engine Generators, IDGs, VFSGs, TRUs,...
Hi everyone, sorry if this question was asked before. I am about to buy New glasses that you can attach sunglasses to but the are connected via magnets on each side of the frame.
The optician tells me its fine and that the magnets are weak enough to not interfere with my St Judes pacemaker. What Do you guys think. I am very unsure and since I cant return the glasses (am on vacation in Italy last day today and my cardiologist is not available)
Thank you so much in advance! :)
Can I get a hearing test with a ICD/Defibulator Pacemaker? Asuming they still have you wear Head phones its been 50 years since my last test
I have been having a knee pain recently and I want to use Dr Ho's pain therapy device on it.
I asked at the hospital today and they told ne that as long as it is far from the incision should be ok but they still told me "to be on the safe side dont risk it". So I dont know what to do.
Anyone tried dr Ho with a pacemaker?
I love to blog and record videos. Recently, I purchased a Noise cancellation Wireless Microphone. The Receiver is attached to the mobile and Mic is used to speak (which is transmitter).
I'm bit concerned of using it near to the Device implanted area (Left Chest) as I felt Funny (felt my heart just squeezed and beat hard like a premature beat) when I was using it.
What's your experience so far with wireless microphones?
i really want to get some body contouring treatments done but all of them uses radio frequency waves and magnetic fields.... i have heard it is not safe for pacemakers but I only need the treatment on my legs/tummy. My question is; since it is not close to the pacemaker area, do you think it will be ok for me to undergo the treatments ????
I’m scheduled for an MRI of my right shoulder for rotator cuff pain for several months. I tried to put it off as long as I could but the pain is persistent and moderately limits my daily activities. However, I’m quite apprehensive about the procedure even though my device is MR conditional (Boston Scientific Accolade). I would like any opinions from those who have had MRIs as to what your individual experiences were during or after the MRIs!!! Thank you
Can I have my teeth cleaned by dentist using a sonic scaler.
He did not seem to know and as I am a newbie I thought I could ask
one of you lovely people. I recentlyhad my pacemaker recallibrated
and am now quite happy with it. Thank you
I'm considering getting a robot lawnmower and understand most of them come with a wire you run along the perimeter of your lawn to guide the mower. This is an electric wire which is to be plugged in.
Is there any interference from this wire and my ICD/pacemaker? Does the 6"rule apply?
I'm new to the Pacemaker Club. I got my PM a month ago and am just learning the ropes. I do a lot of outdoor dancing and with the summer near I was interested in purchasing the kind of neck fan that is in the shape of a horseshoe and rests at the base of your neck. It is rechargeable. Most models hang low enough on either side of your neck that the left side will be closer than 6 inches from my device. Does anyone have experience using one of these fans? Nothing I can find in the des...
Will it affect your pacemaker to use a electric mixer?
Has anyone encountered p;roblems using the Rife Machine?
This may seem odd, but I am having trouble finding the answers anywhere online. I've recently been trying to date again and it has me asking a couple of questions:
1) does it cause problems being intimately close, even snuggling, with someone else who has a pacemaker?
2) I met someone who is one of those people who is magnetized. Where even carrying a watch or a cell phone close to their body will cause the watch/cell phone to stop working. Could being close to a person l...
My first PM was implanted in 1980, when I was 14 months old. I have a complete heart block, so PM dependent. Right now I am bi-v paced and have epicardial leads. I have had too many complications to list due to mistakes that were made along the way, including multiple lead failures. I had open heart surgery in 2017 to repair SVC syndrome which is why I have epicardial leads.
My extremely long and complicated medical history leaves me concerned . &nbs...
I'd like to run a Van de Graaff experiment in my class, but there are places that suggest that's inadvisable.

Opinions on using (not using) cordless impact tools i.e. 18V-20V cordless drill-Drivers (Hammer Drills) and Impact Drivers (1/4" drive and 1/2" drive)
You know you're wired when...
Youre officially battery-operated.
I'm 35 and got my pacemaker a little over a year ago. It definitely is not a burden to me. In fact, I have more energy (which my husband enjoys), can do more things with my kids and have weight because of having the energy.
