Lvad and radio interferenceTue, 02/06/2018 - 8:34PM
I have a strange question. Before getting my lvad, one thing I used to enjoy was listening to shortwave radio while falling asleep. I used to prop the radio on my chest while tuning though the frequencies. Now that I have an lvad, I’m finding it impossible to listen anymore. I get an overpowering whine that I believe is related to the motor inside me. I can alter the strength of the interference by moving the receiver, but then I can’t reach the dials. I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this phenomenon?
