Handheld Metal Detectors Don't Seem to Affect Pacemakers: Study
Date:10/31/2011

stration advises travelers with cardiac rhythm devices to request a pat-down inspection at the airport rather than standard detector screening. However, the authors said dated airport technology and older devices contributed to those concerns.

"There have been infrequent reports to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration where routine device function has been impacted by metal detectors," Fonarow said.

The authors conceded that their study had limitations. They only looked at two types of cardiac rhythm devices in a small group of participants, and the screening was conducted in hospitals, not in actual airports, they pointed out.
