I have been told I will soon need a pacemaker installed.
In reading up on this I have discovered they are susceptible to the ignition noise of gas powered chain saws as well as RF Transmitters.
This means I will need some sort of shielding when I start my engines and when I fly.
I am thinking I will need a sort of metal sleeveless shirt that is grounded to the nearest post.
Anyone have any experience with this sort of problem?
Also, the fifth point made in this article from AHA says that household items like radios won't bother it. heck, I wouldn't even think WiFI signals would disrupt it! Especially because 2.4 GHz has less power than an oven, and ovens are fine to use.

Naw. I have a pacemaker defibrillator installed. Had it since 2008. I run a chainsaw and fly 2.4 and 72, use Bluetooth devices, etc. Never had a problem. I think it was the very early models that had the problems.
Me too. Mine was installed in 01 I fly 2.4 used to fly 72, use wifi and even have an old industrial generator that I use. The pacemaker will reset if it ever gets interference. I called Medtronic when I first got mine and they said go for it. Hope you do as well with yours as I have.
