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
I have been having a knee pain recently and I want to use Dr Ho's pain therapy device on it.
I asked at the hospital today and they told ne that as long as it is far from the incision should be ok but they still told me "to be on the safe side dont risk it". So I dont know what to do.
Anyone tried dr Ho with a pacemaker?
I love to blog and record videos. Recently, I purchased a Noise cancellation Wireless Microphone. The Receiver is attached to the mobile and Mic is used to speak (which is transmitter).
I'm bit concerned of using it near to the Device implanted area (Left Chest) as I felt Funny (felt my heart just squeezed and beat hard like a premature beat) when I was using it.
What's your experience so far with wireless microphones?
i really want to get some body contouring treatments done but all of them uses radio frequency waves and magnetic fields.... i have heard it is not safe for pacemakers but I only need the treatment on my legs/tummy. My question is; since it is not close to the pacemaker area, do you think it will be ok for me to undergo the treatments ????
I’m scheduled for an MRI of my right shoulder for rotator cuff pain for several months. I tried to put it off as long as I could but the pain is persistent and moderately limits my daily activities. However, I’m quite apprehensive about the procedure even though my device is MR conditional (Boston Scientific Accolade). I would like any opinions from those who have had MRIs as to what your individual experiences were during or after the MRIs!!! Thank you
Can I have my teeth cleaned by dentist using a sonic scaler.
He did not seem to know and as I am a newbie I thought I could ask
one of you lovely people. I recentlyhad my pacemaker recallibrated
and am now quite happy with it. Thank you
I'm considering getting a robot lawnmower and understand most of them come with a wire you run along the perimeter of your lawn to guide the mower. This is an electric wire which is to be plugged in.
Is there any interference from this wire and my ICD/pacemaker? Does the 6"rule apply?
I'm new to the Pacemaker Club. I got my PM a month ago and am just learning the ropes. I do a lot of outdoor dancing and with the summer near I was interested in purchasing the kind of neck fan that is in the shape of a horseshoe and rests at the base of your neck. It is rechargeable. Most models hang low enough on either side of your neck that the left side will be closer than 6 inches from my device. Does anyone have experience using one of these fans? Nothing I can find in the des...
Will it affect your pacemaker to use a electric mixer?
Has anyone encountered p;roblems using the Rife Machine?
This may seem odd, but I am having trouble finding the answers anywhere online. I've recently been trying to date again and it has me asking a couple of questions:
1) does it cause problems being intimately close, even snuggling, with someone else who has a pacemaker?
2) I met someone who is one of those people who is magnetized. Where even carrying a watch or a cell phone close to their body will cause the watch/cell phone to stop working. Could being close to a person l...
My first PM was implanted in 1980, when I was 14 months old. I have a complete heart block, so PM dependent. Right now I am bi-v paced and have epicardial leads. I have had too many complications to list due to mistakes that were made along the way, including multiple lead failures. I had open heart surgery in 2017 to repair SVC syndrome which is why I have epicardial leads.
My extremely long and complicated medical history leaves me concerned . &nbs...
I'd like to run a Van de Graaff experiment in my class, but there are places that suggest that's inadvisable.
The Voltage is high, but the current is low.

Opinions on using (not using) cordless impact tools i.e. 18V-20V cordless drill-Drivers (Hammer Drills) and Impact Drivers (1/4" drive and 1/2" drive)
I just joined the club today so I don't know my way around yet and this is my first post. Likely this topic has been discussed elsewhere but my clumsy use of the search algorithm was in vain. I am the owner of a Medtronic Percepta CRT-P MRI that was installed on the left side in Dec 2022. I had rotator cuff surgery on this shoulder in 2020, the result of a bench press injury. Now it seems osteo arthritis is at work there, the investigation thereof requires...
Does anyone use either iPods or wireless headphones with their pacemaker. I'm new to this. Got my PM in Jan. Still adjusting and trying to learn all the "don't s".
Has anyone had a BRAVO test? It's a GI test to check for acid reflux. A capsule I'd put on your esophagus to measure acid reflux. The capsule falls off in 48 hours and is eliminated.
or have you had any other tests for acid?
Hi, my wife had 2 cable pacemaker installed 3 years ago due to AV full block. She is pacemaker dependent. During dental treatment, the pacemaker is put in asynchronous mode so that the devices do not interfere. It's annoying that to get it asynchronous each dental session. I consulted with different cardiologist. He said that there is no need, with recent technologies there is no need to set asynchronous mode while dental treatment. Anyone have similar experience? Thanks for your res...
Hi, I have a medtronic pacemaker (it is in bipolar mode - I think that's relevant to my question based on my research thus far!). I am considering buying a home that is adjacent to high voltage transmission lines (230kV). The backyard literally backs up to the transmission lines/right of way, so they would be very close. Would this be a concern for my pacemaker? I have found some articles and comments here and elsewhere that it is fine to pass under these...
Thank you, Gemita.
You know you're wired when...
You run like the bionic woman.
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.
