Disturbing observations by scientists have been published in the journal Heart Rhythm. It turns out that people who have a pacemaker, and at the same time have an iPhone 12, have to be very careful.
If the phone is carried, for example, in a shirt pocket, it may disable the rescue unit. Scientists explain that this is mainly due to the magnetic field created by MagSafe technology, which, among other things, allows for wireless charging.
These starters will damage the MagSafe
Experts from & nbspHenry Ford for the heart and blood vessels say that MagSafe can only damage Medtronic pacemakers.
The researchers reported that an immediate cessation of ICD therapy was noted when the iPhone approached the ICD via the left side of the chest and remained throughout the test.
Apple has already addressed that issue. The giant confirms that “magnets and electromagnetic fields emitted by their iPhones can interfere with medical devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators.”
