Pacemaker Shielding Materials
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 owners and there are no showers with electrics, and I had no experience of any kind of shock. My only thoughts are a commercial microwave in the kitchen or there is an electric fence outside for sheep, but I am sure I never touched it.
I now need to return to the property for a week later in the month and am stressing out. I've seen various fabrics advertised: the Lebok EMF shielding clothes and also TitanRF faraday fabric. I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge of if these would make any difference to possible interference, or indeed might even be harmful?
I know I probably just need to put it down to experience but the not knowing and the needing to go back is really worrying me as I keep thinking what happens if the inhibition happens when I need to be pacing. 30 seconds then seems like a long time!
Any advice much appreciated
