In issue 72 of GUCH News, patient and member Kulsoom Akbar shared her story with us. Kulsoom, now aged 25, had her first pacemaker fitted at just 17 months. Growing up with the device, Kulsoom has encountered many issues, but has also embraced the life that the pacemaker has allowed her to enjoy.

In this article, we explore some of the day-to-day issues that people with pacemakers might need to consider. Adult Congenital Heart Specialist Nurses, Bethan Shiers, and Wendy Visser, both from the Bristol Heart Institute, provide us with the medical facts and advice regarding some of the common concerns about pacemakers.
