EMP's and ICD's
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.
My ejection fraction rate is 30-35% but I feel okay when I excersise. I also have a sinus bunble block and have gone into A-fib a couple of times which really weakens my heart.
I read somebody's comment who said an EMP would cause the ICD to" heat up and boil your heart."
Scary! I do not know what to think. Should I call the manufacture, my Doctor?
I would appreciate any comments.
