Will static electricity affect my pacemaker?

The scientific answer is yes it might, depending on the strength and location of the static electrical charge to the human body. From the Journal “Images in cardiology” “Initiation of pacemaker endless loop tachycardia by triboelectricity” (static electricity)
Static Electricity Affects Pacemakers
“Static electricity or triboelectric signals may account for mysterious oversensing by unipolar pacemakers. When the relative humidity is quite low, an observer, especially when wearing rubber shoes, may gather considerable static electricity when entering a carpeted room. Touching the patient’s skin over a unipolar pacemaker may release sufficient static voltage to be sensed by a unipolar pacemaker.”
