Interestingly, it could be argued that having a cardiac pacemaker in situ may to some degree be protective, since it is known that ECT per se, especially when delivered using the bifrontotemporal electrode position, can result in a significant cholinergic surge with subsequent severe bradycardia or even asystole (20,21).

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to research and define methods for measuring MRI safety of medical implants, focusing on the leads used with cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, and neurostimulators;
Under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), Biophan will collaborate with the FDA's Science and Engineering Laboratories in the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, to help develop guidelines and standards for assessing the safety of cardiac pacemaker and neurostimulation leads used in the MRI environment.
stated, "Cylos DR-T is the world's only cardiac pacemaker to offer the unique and proprietary rate-adaptive algorithm known as Closed Loop Stimulation, which can respond to both acute mental stress and physiologic demands, essentially mimicking the heart's natural response mechanism.

This 11-chapter guide to cardiac pacemakers, ICDs (implantable cardiac defibrillators), and CRTs (cardiac resynchronization therapies) explains indications for permanent and temporary cardiac pacing; the components of pacing and the ICD system; the hemodynamics of cardiac pacing and pacing mode selection; temporary cardiac pacing; techniques of implantation and removal; pacemaker timing cycles and special features; evaluation, troubleshooting, and the management of malfunctions; the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator; ICD follow-up and troubleshooting; and follow-up of the patient with CIEDs (cardiovascular implantable electronic devices).
An analysis of more than 80 medical device reports between 1987 and 2000 by the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) Center for Devices and Radiological Health reveals likely adverse interactions between the fields produced by metal detectors and PMEDs, such as cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators, and drug infusion pumps.
