The pacemaker was installed in a half-hour procedure under local
anesthesia. The surgeon ran leads down a vein from an incision in the
shoulder. Unit itself is in the top of the shoulder, and compact. I
don't know what the exact means of connection are, but the magnetic
pickup sounds plausible.
Oh, and Dad's unit is safe around microwave ovens.
