Hi all, Had a fairly crap start to the year, ending up in A&E. To cut a long story short I now have a CRT-D installed in me. I would have said a Pacemaker but the Cardiologist kept correcting me - It's a Cardiac Resynchronisation and Therapy - Defibrillator. I'm struggling to get categoric info on restrictions. Mostly it's anecdotal 'don't try this at home'. My cardiologist said go ahead and I then had to explain what a mig welder was and then he conceded he didn't know. I've tried contacting the manufacturer, Boston Scientific (no, not the robot people) and have had no success finding anyone technical. The only info I've had is, don't weld in the wet, keep earth clamp near the point of welding, don't pulse the welder (knackered then for thin stuff) and keep to a distance of 24" when welding. I've measured my arm and my reach is more like 22". So I'd have to weld with my arm straight/outstretched and even then I've not met the 24" criteria - I'd certainly get some great pigeon droppings with that welding style. Anybody here weld and have a Pacemaker/CRT-D? Once you have one of these devices is it then the end of your welding days? Anybody here experienced this? ie what happens if you're a professional welder - do you get an apprentice?? Thanks in advance.
