Precautions for users of implanted cardiac
pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless
devices):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an
independent research entity, led a multidisciplinary
evaluation of the interference between portable
wireless devices and implanted cardiac pacemakers.
Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,
WTR recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless devices at least six inches
from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless devices directly over
the pacemaker, such as in a breast pocket, when
it is turned ON.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to
bystanders with pacemakers from other persons
using wireless devices.

Stimulateurs cardiaques implantés dans
l’organisme
Les simulateurs cardiaques (ne s’applique qu’aux
dispositifs numériques sans fil) :
L’organisme ‘Wireless Technology Research, LLC
(WTR)’, une firme de recherche indépendante,
a mené une évaluation pluridisciplinaire des
interférences entre les téléphones sans fil portatifs
et les stimulateurs cardiaques implantés dans
l’organisme. Appuyée par l’Administration des
aliments et drogues (FDA) des États-Unis, la firme
WTR recommande aux médecins:
Avis aux détenteurs de stimulateurs cardiaques
• Vous devriez maintenir les dispositifs sans fil à au
moins six pouces du simulateur cardiaque.
• Ils ne doivent PAS placer le téléphone sans fil
directement sur le stimulateur cardiaque, tel que
dans une poche de chemise, lorsque celui-ci est
en marche.
L’étude effectuée par l’organisme WRS n’a pas
identifié de risque pour les détenteurs de simulateurs
cardiaques causés par les gens qui utilisent
dispositifs sans fil à proximité de ceux-ci.
