Metal detector security screening appears safe for people with pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), researchers found. Metal detector gates, which generate much stronger electromagnetic fields, also appeared safe for cardiac rhythm device patients in a prior study by the same research group.
as the stove top works on a magnetic field that gets concentrated will metal appliances , it is possible that that magnetic will affect the pacemaker if near the stove
contact the manufacturer of the pacemaker direct or talk with the heart specialist for exacting advice
a pacemaker is a small unit that is fitted in the chest with wires connected to the heart
it emits an electrical impulse that keeps the heart beat regular
if the doctor considers you need one , you have been diagnosed with an irregular heat beat, which in circumstances can be fatal
the operation requires a stay for a day and is installed by a heart specialist
The treating doctor would have explained all of this during the consultation so talk some more with him
Hundreds of thousands of people have them and the operation is minor and safe
Yes you can, your pacemaker has to have a strong magnetic field to interfere with it.
Here is a list of devices and whether or not they will interfere with your pacemaker from the American Heart Association.
Boy is this posted in the wrong place. "If the pacemaker has one lead, it is known as a single chamber
pacemaker. The lead can be placed in either the right atrium or the
right ventricle. This type of device can be used only if the signal
from the SA node or the AV node is the problem, and all other
electrical conduction in the patient's heart is working correctly.
Patients with this type of pacemaker can sometimes feel an
uncomfortable neck throbbing, chest fullness or faintness when the
device fires, known as pacemaker syndrome. Because of this problem, and
the general ability to pump a greater volume of blood, some patients
are treated with a dual chamber system."--BNET http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_gGENH/is_20050229/ai_2699003575/
