Get Your Government Hands Off My Undesired Operations

Every morning I check my blood pressure to see whether I am still alive, using a simple little battery-powered device called in laymenís language a sphygmomanometer. Today, using a device called a magnifying glass, I finally read the fine print on it:

This product complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

(1) This product may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this product must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operations.

Well, okay. I guess I can live with that. Only what does it mean?

I think you should worry if you have a pacemaker!

Hmm. Seems possible but a quick and superficial Google doesn't mention sphygmomanometers as a risk factor for pacemaker wearers.
