MyIdentityDoctor.com recommends ways to live safely with a pacemaker.
Lakewood, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/14/2015 -- Worldwide, 3,000,000 people live with pacemakers implanted in their chest or abdomen. Every year, another 600,000 pacemakers are installed. Pacemakers do exactly what they proclaim – they "make the pace" for people's hearts who suffer from irregular heart rhythms. Because pacemakers involve electrical pulses, many people are concerned about what they can and cannot do in their everyday lives after a pacemaker has been implanted.
A spokesperson from My Identity Doctor suggests, "If you have a pacemaker, there are some things you can do to live safely. The first is to always keep your scheduled doctor's appointments. Doctors will detect the effectiveness of the pacemaker, as well as if the batteries are running low. Also, if your pacemaker beeps, call your doctor immediately. No matter what type of procedure you're getting done, make sure every doctor, dentist and technician around you knows that you have a pacemaker. To stay safe at home, keep at least six inches away from any devise that emits electromagnetic energy. Also, although most power tools are safe, chain saws and welders are best left to someone else. And also important, always carry an ID card or wear medical alert jewelry so those around you will know your situation if something goes wrong."
