As Electric vehicle (EV) mandates are currently being considered in at least 17 states, there is a growing list of issues associated with them, like having a pacemaker fitted.

Americans who use a pacemaker are particularly at risk when using charging stations.

The Leading Manufacturer of Heart Pacemakers (Medtronic) has recommended that its users distance themselves at least 12 inches from electric vehicle charging stations, according to The Environmental Health Trust.

Medtronic also warns its users to stay away from electric fences, electric pet containment fences, and transformer boxes.

For Implantable Cardiac Devices

Most household and hobby items are unlikely to affect your heart device when the items are in good working condition, used as intended, and the recommended distances are maintained.

For items that transmit power through an antenna, it is recommended that you follow the noted distances between the antenna and your implanted heart device.
