NEW YORK (Reuters) -
After relying on a pacemaker for 20 years, Carol Kasyjanski has become the first American recipient of a wireless pacemaker that allows her doctor to monitor her health from afar -- over the Internet.

When Kasyjanski heads to St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, New York, for a routine check-up, about 90 percent of the work has already been done because her doctor logged into his computer and learned most of what he needed to know about his patient.

Three weeks ago Kasyjanski, 61, became the first person in the United States to be implanted with a pacemaker with a wireless home monitoring system that transmits critical information to her doctor via the Internet.

Kasyjanski, who has suffered from a severe heart condition for more than 20 years, says the device has given her renewed confidence and a new lease of life, because if her pacemaker were to malfunction or stop working, only immediate action would save her life.

wonder what the long term effects are of carrying a radio transmitter with in your body will do ,

one can but ponder, since cellphone usage became a norm , sperm count within the male spices has loweredbut i dont know about females and the eggs if they are damaged but theres been some studies liking heavy usage radio waves and retardation of the sperm.

id say the safes way would have been to have separate apparatuses for collecting and sending the data.

no need to expose your self to something(radio waves) we still dont know all about.

Now imagine someone acquiring the IP address for this man's pacemaker and hacking into it.

Crank up the pace and watch him dance!

lol...Hmmm, I am not too sure if they would include an IP address on his pacemaker. He would need a Static IP address to be viewable by the public.
