Don’t Worry about Your Cell Phone

Electrically active implants such as pacemakers, ICDs and CRT devices are well shielded from cell phone radiation, and complications are extremely rare. In any case, hold your cell phone on the opposite side of the heart device when you are make a call, and when not in use, store your cell phone a few centimeters away from your chest, for example in your purse or pants pocket.
