Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I read carefully your query.
Infrared sauna are safe in patients with heart stents or even Pacemaker.It won't cause any problem.
You need to drink plenty of water and stay well hydrated to avoid low blood pressure and electrolyte changes.

It would be a good idea to consult it with your treating doctor just to be safe ,although sauna won't cause any problem.

Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any question.

Kind regards,
Dr.Rovena Murati
