Abstract

After implantation of a pacemaker, the patient may lead a normal active life for his age. The improvement is sometimes only observed after several weeks. Knowing that he is carrying a delicate intracorporal device responsible for regulating his cardiac rhythm, the patient will ask his doctor if there are any extrinsic situations which might upset its function, though he will no doubt be aware through the press or his friends of some of the risks.
