Hacking the Heart

A new study (warning opens as a pdf) has found that pacemakers can be hacked! Finally a way to mix my loves of IT and nursing! OK granted if you have a pacemaker then the chances of being hacked are rather slim and the hacker will need around $30,000 of equipment. There is zero chance of me having the skills to do this, so you'll be safe from me at least!
But apparently the hacks can be used to give tiny shocks...... electrifying!
