"The study found that electrical interference was detected half of the time when the iPod was held just 2 inches from the patient's chest for 5 to 10 seconds. The study looked at 100 patients whose mean age was 77. iPods were the only type of portable music device tested.

The report's authors said the effect may not have been noticed before because pacemaker recipients are not typically iPod users."
