Mashgin self checkout
Hello my husband has had a defibrillator since 2020 due to him having a cardiac arrest, By God grace I am a RN and I was not scheduled to work that night to perform CPR when he went into cardiac arrest. He's had the defibrillator for 3 years he's had no issues no shocks until now. Last night when we out of town in SC I sat in the car while he went into a Circle K store his defibrillator went off that was the first time it has ever went off. He walked infront of the self checkout counter and he said if felt like someone had punched him and shot him and snatched his soul from his body and everything went dark he said he had to grab onto the counter. People inside the store asked was he OK he let them know he hs a defibrillator, and the cashier told him that she would take him at the next counter where they actually ring up your items manually because he was standing infront the self check out he came outside and told me what happened and that his chest felt hot where the defibrillator is located. I went in the store and I saw Circle K has the Mashgin machine that they use for self checkout and this machine has some type of magnet in it. Could it be possible that this machine set his defibrillator off and there was no signs in the store giving people warning signs that have defibrillators.

I feel so blessed to have this little gem implanted in me. When I think of the alternative it is quite overwhelming sometimes.
