how much of a shock, in voltage, can a pacemaker

how much of a shock, in voltage, can a pacemaker handle. My friend is getting shocked when touching the metal trim around her sink and the electricians are working on isolating the problem, but until it's fixed I want to ensure she's safe. They've recorded 2 volts.

Would recieving an electric shock cause a pacemaker/internal defib to stop working. My father has one and the other day revieved a shock from a computer he was working on and now he is feeling sick, tired and wore down just like before he had it put in.

should-a-person-stop-a-pacemaker-with-a-magnet if it keeps on shocking the patient. my partner recently experienced 36 shocks in 1.5 hours due to AF setting off the ICD. The nurse in A & E put a magnet over the device and it stopped. Is this something I can buy

I have had a pacemaker put in five weeks ago sand have felt worse. After a week, went back and they did an EKG. A wire had came loose, so they went back in and fixed it ( or so they said). Three days later, I started being shocked. This happened numerous times. Went to the ER and the tech turned off my pacemaker. Now they want to go back in. Now, I am having chills and fever. Do I need to check finding another doctor, or what can I do? I just want them to remove the pacemaker.
