Pacemakers and electromagnetic fields and interference
Hi everyone! New to this club and to pacemaker equipment as of January 29th, 2019. Wondering if anyone out there is a Mechanic or a Welder that also has a pacemaker and how it has changed their work place day to day stuff. Things that could affect the pacemaker operation, what to avoid and what to do to protect so can do normal routine of job. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I enjoy my work and want to continue it.

I had a pacemaker when I was 11. I never once thought I wasn't a 'normal kid' nor was I ever treated differently because of it. I could do everything all my friends were doing; I just happened to have a battery attached to my heart to help it work.
