Can a heart rate monitor interfere with the operation of an ICD?

Question: I have a DAI and I would like to know if wearing a heart rate monitor can interfere with its operation. Rafael (Valencia).

Answer: Heart rate monitors do not, in principle, interfere with ICDs. However, when producing very small magnetic fields it is recommended that they be kept as far away from the DAI as possible (the same as mobile phones, for example).
