Why don't you ask at the hospital that fitted the pacemaker...

My personal view (I am an electronics tech) is that there is no significant risk at all due to the frequencies involved. There are far worse EM (electromagnetic fields) in day to day life that are far more likely to interfere... and in practice it just dowsn't seem to happen.

But... as this is such an imporant question you must seek your own advice... and the people to ask... the hospital etc.

Do you use a mobile ? a Microwave ? :)
