Dos and Donts suggestions for those who are fitted with pace makers

Sharing with you the info I have come across on pace maker. A heart specialist gave the following advise for those who are fitted with pace makers.

Pace maker is fitted to increase the pumping rate of the heart. Normally it should be within the range of 60 to 90 beats per minute and it varies depending upon one's activity and stress levels. When it reduces drastically, pace maker is fitted to increase the heart pumping function to normal level.

  1. Pace maker will only help to increase the heart beat and cannot prevent heart attack. Hence have to careful with the eating & living habits.
  2. Pace maker will not function inside a magnetic field, hence let you doctor know if you are prescribed for MRI scans and avoid going to places where magnetic field is there
  3. Always carry the certificate or the card which says that pacemaker is planted in your body, this is to avoid the problem that may arise during a security check as the metal detector will raise an alarm. Especially while travelling by flights or going to temples or malls which has metal detector.
  4. If the person who has got a pace maker fitted in his or her body dies, please remove the instrument with the help of a doctor before making cremations as it may explode during that process.
