+ - iPods Can Make Pacemakers Malfunction

Submitted by Radon360
Radon360 writes: According to a recent study performed by a 17-year-old high school student in conjunction with the Thoracic and Cardiovascular Institute at Michigan State University, iPods can cause pacemakers to malfunction. In a study of 100 patients, iPods interfered with the pacemaker's ability to monitor the patient's heart rhythm, up to 18 inches away in some cases. Although the results may be alarming, the senior author adds that their findings require more study.
