EMI Sources

We strive to anticipate situations, activities and products that can interfere with the function of our implantable cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices. Many of our devices have protections built in to minimize or eliminate electromagnetic interference (EMI), the most common source of issues. However, certain types of EMI still pose risk.

You can read more about the sources and effects of EMI in Electromagnetic Interference and the Pacemaker Patient.
