Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

Measurements revealed that, in the most unfavorable case, per kV/m unimpaired electrical field strength an interference voltage of 220 µV would occur at the input of a unipolar cardiac pacemaker.
Thus, it is highly unlikely that an implanted cardiac pacemaker is disturbed under practice-relevant conditions.
