To avoid potential interference, manufacturers of implanted medical devices recommend a minimum separation of 6 inches (15.3 centimeters) between a wireless device and the medical device. Persons who have such devices should:

  • Always keep the wireless device more than 6 inches (15.3 centimeters) from the medical device.

  • Not carry the wireless device in a breast pocket.

  • Hold the wireless device to the ear opposite the medical device.

  • Turn the wireless device off if there is any reason to suspect that interference is taking place.

  • Follow the manufacturer directions for the implanted medical device.

If you have any questions about using your wireless device with an implanted medical device, consult your health care provider.
