Hello everyone! I am in my late 20s and got a Boston Scientific Sub-Q ICD implant. My EP doctor gave me the go ahead to ride roller coasters again, however my question is, has anyone risked riding a coaster with a magnetic launch. I love these roller coasters, and want to know if there is real risk of anything. Thanks!
I had a PM (bradycardia) installed Jan 20/22. It was intended to be a 3 wire cadliiac version. Setup was completed and I was sent home. During evening sleep I experienced a total body nerve event. Vibration lasted about an hour. Ambulance to hospital, reset PM. Experienced repeat event. Clinic was unable to set PM without causing various versions of . Decided to eliminate one wire from functioning. ( apparently it was having is...
I am noticing a signal interference in the bluetooth devices when I use them. I do have a CRT pacemaker that uses bluetooth signal. Do you all think the pacemaker could put out a signal that interferes with a bluetooth signal? I did try to research this myself but all the results focus on the bluetooth affecting the pacmake which is more important of course. I am mostly just curious.
I have had my pacemaker since 2019. I have total heart block. I just purchased a high end professional sewing machine. When I took it out of the box, it had a warning label for a strong magnet. I don't know if I can possibly allow proper distance from the magnet while sewing. I am also concerned with the amount of time I would be close to the machine while sewing a project. Do we have any sewers in this group that may have any information on if this type of magnet is strong enough to...
I had a smart meter installed when I wasn't home . Later the next day I called the local power company to have it move to a pole near the street.I was given a thousand reasons that the smart meter posed no threat to my device. Actually, I had to get the local newspaper reporter to help me. My guess is that the power company did not want the bad press so they moved it from my house to a pole near the street about 150 feet away from its previous location. I have researched Sma...

Most alternators are located at the top of the engine also known as a stator .I do not know of any mowers that have alternators located under the seat. if you could give me a model of the lawn tractor that has one under the seat please do so,I am always ready to learn something new.

I contacted ABBOT LABS regarding my experience . The rep had no concrete information regarding what the cause could . He stated there were too many variables to even speculate as to the cause of my problem. I want to mention I had a strong magnet that is used to disable unnecessary shocks that might come while on my mower . The reason for this started last Easter morning I was urinating when I got a shock unexpectedly I had just taken my BP and all was well. The shock I received...
I have experienced several incidents of false pacing of my AbbottLAB three-wire ICD.This has happened on my 21 HP. riding mower. I had a three-wire ICD implanted about 5 months ago .The head of electrophysiology at Emory University did my surgery .He's the best of the best . I don't know if the bumps are causing this or the magnetic field. I have read several responses from the group concerning this problem .Has anyone use Shirts using silver-infused fabrics to block the waves...
Recent recipient of Boston Scientific L131 and feeling great!
I'm applying for a job as Substation Electrician: 12kv AC to rectifier for 1500v DC
Job would entail mainly switching.
Should it be a concern w/PM?
I'll be contacting Boston Scientific for their take tomorrow
I purchased an electric recliner with masssager. I did not even remember I have a pacemaker implant. I've been equipped since 2010. This is my second one. So - can I use the chair? I don't like massages so I wold not be using the massager, but I do need help to pull the levers, etc.
Hi, was just wondering if a smart watch will interfere with my pacemaker?
I have a Medtronic W3DRO1 Pacemaker which I had in 2021.
For the past few days I have been experiencing sudden sharp shock pain where the pacemaker is.
has anybody had the same? it lasts for a few seconds.
Also I was diagnosed with Trigamenal Neuralgia which has been causing the same sharp pains in my face but this is the opposite side to the pacemaker? Does anyone suffer the same, I'm wondering if this is caused by the pacemaker.
Any advise would be muchly appreci...
Thank you so much for the helpful comments. I will walk through the next one I come upon......
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

Your device acts like a police scanner.
To tell you the truth I never even give it a second thought. While growing up it never stopped me from doing anything and to this day my girlfriend or my kids need to remind me that I have one!
