In May we reported about a 17 year old student who conducted a study on the effect of iPods on pacemaker at the Thoracic and Cardiovascular Institute at Michigan State University.

The first study showed electrical interference in 50% of the cases when the iPod was held just 2 inches from the patient's chest for 5 to 10 seconds.
