Hi All, I am about a week out with a Medronic CRT-D device and I am a critical care nurse. I know that I can be defibrillated if necessary, but does anyone know if can I OPERATE a defibrillator or who I should call to find out?

I am near many Amateur Radios with frequency from 1.2 ghz down to 1.9 Mhz. Is there something I should be aware of?
Hello all, I have had a pacemaker ( due to bradycardia ) for a year or so.
I set up and use a P.A. system and radio microphone 3 or 4 days a week , sometimes more, which involves lifting and moving speakers. Should I be careful of proximity when they are in use ? They are typically 500 - 1000 watts in power, although not usually run at maximum volume.
Thanks , Fozzy65
So I've had a pacemaker for a little over a year and I am still learning things (I hate the thing because it has given me nothing but trouble). Anyway, I've read in the Nintendo Switch manual that I should keep the machine at least 25 cm away from me when playing wirelessly. I thought the pacemakers were on an own frequency or something? I know I am gonna forget and keep the Switch real close to my chest from time to time, but is there really is a problem with interference I gues...
Do not mess with a garage door opener if you have a pacemaker. Here is the story.
On January 5, I had a garage door tech repair the railings and tightened the springs. After working the door four or five times, it quit. He checked the parts and said it was the capacitor. He replaced it. Worked fine. He told me that if the the door stop again, I would need a new motor. On January 6, it quit again. I almost quit also.
while standing on metal ladder, I opened the cover to the o...
Is it ok to use a hot tub with a pacemaker implant? I have read several articles. For the most part these articles say it's ok but I found two that say it is not. My cardiologist told me it was ok but only to use it for 15 minutes and sit for a while prior to standing up.
Any feedback is appreciated.
I was just wondering if it makes a difference where you choose to sit on a plane once you have an ICD/Pacemaker? I usually prefer to sit over the wings ( less motion sickness lol) but are those big jet engines likely to cause some interference with my device (dual lead Boston Scientific ICD)? Can altitude effect it and cause any side affects? How many of you here fly regularly and have any of you experienced any problems - from going through security to landing at your desti...
Hi, i have had a pacemaker fitted and wanted to use a circulation booster device. I have read the small print for revititive and ot states i cant use their device. Does anyone know any circulation booster devices which can be used with a Pacemaker.
I have a medtronics icd since july 2017 and have been diagnose with Lbbb &Nccm.

I bought a electric toothbrush on the directions it said check with your cardiologist to see if it is save to use it if you have a pacemaker. Is anyone using a electric tooyh brush that has a pacemaker
Have been experiencing unusual visual pulsing under my left ribs,
one to three at a time always precisely 8 minutes to the hour, generally
every other hour. No pain just odd experience. Have been back to cardiology, they say all is well, it's just the pacemaker making adjustments. Just surprised
at the frequency. Any one else with similar experience out there?
Has anyone experienced more arrythmias when using a computer. I seem to have more when using my computer - any comments would be appreciated
Does anyone reading this post know if Atomic Clocks interfere with pacemakers.
Anyone with a pacemaker using a snowmachine? Any problem with the electromagnitic energy coming from the machine?
While waiting for my doctor to respond I thought I'd ask you experts... So I was plugging in my laptop charger into the wall outlet and I got an electric shock that reached my elbow. Is there any way that could cause my pm to malfunction?
First post, 24 hours out of pacemaker installation! Had less time to wrap my brain around having it done, this was a complete shock to me. Anyone have any information about Drone use? Since my phone hooks up to my remote control and they both interact wirelessly with each other along with multiple satellite use....anyone have any negative physical experiences? (Mavic Pro). Suggestions?
I've had my pacemaker for about 3 months. It's very prominenent under my left clavicle. I'm thin and athletic. Was this the best spot to put it? A friend of mine has his deeper and lower under the pectoralis muscle. When I lie on my side it pinches sometimes. Also I feel it during my golf swing sometimes. Is this the most common site; just under the clavicle? Why do you think the MD chose that spot over the other?
Thank you for paying attention to my inquiry.
I found a very good apartment and want to move there, but the owner told me there is no gas stove, and they have only electric range/stove.
I know induction cooctop (IH) affects pacemaker, but my question is, does electric range also affect it?
Since I've had some troubles with my device, I really want to avoid anything that could affect it egatively.
I would appreciate if you could share your opinion about it.
I haven't been around here long enough to even call myself a noob, so pls forgive my two issues and in two days.
Second only to my bicycling, I work with electrically - powered hand tools in my shop. I'm familiar with all the cautions listed in the literature and accept that most ordinary shop tools do not present much risk particularly if one observes the precautions.
That said, I still wonder if anyone manufacturers any garmets that would shield my pm from EMI...
I am new to PM and this site, having had my first pm implant the day before yesterday.
I'm a life long bicyclist, my average mileage for the last ten years is about 100 miles/wk.
I use a Garmin edge 520 along with a variety of belts that snap around my torso with the pick ups quite close to the pm incision.
The only literature I have found thus far, addresses the pm's effect on the HR monitor. About which, by comparison, I am hardly concerned at all.
