Cpap and pacemaker difibrillator

Cpap and pacemaker difibrillator
Is it possible that the CPAP machine is interfering with the function of my pacemaker / defibrillator?

Mask yes, the ones with the magnetic closures. Machine, extremely unlikely. It would have to fail in a form that generates a strong enough magnetic field to reach your implant. Maybe if you placed it on your chest. Motors, and thus blowers, have magnets.
