Warning: Ipods Interfere With Pacemakers


Recommended Posts

I think this was a study done by a high school student, so it's not necessarily conclusive evidence :D ...though it probably doesn't hurt to be safe. My Polar heart rate monitor seems to act up sometimes when I'm using my ipod, so I wouldn't be surprised if the ipod sends out an electrical signal which could mess up a pacemaker.

Well, I'm good... I have a very long cord on my earbuds and I put the mP3 player on the headboard of the bed, so I have plenty of distance! :D

I just sent a copy of the article to my dad who has a combo pacemaker/implanted defibrilator. Thanks for posting that...
