Programmable shunts can be adjusted by accident

iPad 2’s are in use everywhere and many times are used as a communication device for people with physical challenges. I use an iPad 2 for our EMR and was just alerted to this fact. The iPad 2 has magnets that apparently can inadvertently adjust a shunt. I will be asking all parents now about shunts in their children. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Chiari-Malformation/FYI-Those-with-Programmable-SHUNTS/show/1661065
