A study was initiated to determine the relative danger presented to cardiac pacemaker patients by the microwave oven in comparison with other known sources of electromagnetic interference. This report explains how pacemakers and microwave ovens function, describes the mechanism of electromagnetic interference, and outlines the status of Division of Electronic Products activities' in this area.
