I had a PM installed 3/4/19 and have some questions about wearing an Apple Watch or Fitbit for self-monitoring and general travel. Obviously I do not have a clear understanding how this all works.
1. Will the devices interfere with my PM?
2. If not, which one offers the best information?
3. Do I carry my Merlin Transmitter with me when I stay in a motel?
4. How am I monitored during the day when I am outside, shopping, or riding in a car?
Thank you for...

In addition to having a pacemaker, I use a CPAP machine for sleep apnea. I recently was upgraded to a newer CPAP. The straps for the nose mask have magnetic clips on either side. The magnets attach the straps and sit about 1/2 way between the bottom of my jawbone and my ears. The CPAP tech had literature saying that the magnets should not interfere with a pacemaker. The magnets are small, and I am inclined to believe they are not a...
Is my phone interfering (spelling not my strong suit) with my cardio messenger? Am I supposed to keep them a certain distance away from each other. Does that mean using my phone is blocking messenger from connecting with my doctor?
Also I had a weird 10 second thing my heart started beating really fast. I obviously noticed and tried to Pace my breathing, and it slowed but isn't the pacemaker soposed to keep that from happening?
Just wanted to find out if anyone else had this experience. For several weeks I’ve been pushing a walker due to arthritic knees. I can actually walk just fine; the walker helps me get around more confidently. A few days ago I was visiting my husband at a really large hospital. While I was walking with his entourage who were moving him to a new room, we stopped to wait for an elevator. It was then that I felt light-headed and “funn...
Do Industrial type elevators the ones that can carry large stuff cause problems with pacing devices and if so should I worry if their is an Interferece. I had to use one twice today. After I came back up I felt like their may have been an Interference but it only lasted about a second or two.

Do any of you know if IT equipment like servers .routers, switches will affect a pacemaker. Giong to eventually start a career in the IT field. Was wondering if any have experience in this field. Not sure if a data center that has lots of equipment and also maybe ac cooling will have an effect or not to worry. I use computers and smart phone devices no problems.
Thanks for the feedback. I feel better now. I have only had my pacemaker for a month so still new at this
Has anyone had any issues with car radios affecting their pacemakers. I just recently got mine and it seems when i drive with the radio on i feel a little quizzy. Didnt know if i was just over thinking this or if it could really be an issue. Thanks
Thank you for your comment.
My electrocardiologist explained to me yesterday what happens when I come within an erea of a stronger EMF such as in speakers or large subwoofers which have many large magnets. I was told not just speakers/subwoofers but I may feel it when I am on my riding lawnmower or using my brush-cutter.... I guess it switches my pacemaker to a 100% full time control of pacing my heart and that could be anywhere between 85 beats to 140 beat...
