Medical Defibrillator/pacemaker affected by device measuring capacitance?

  1. Feb 27, 2011 #1
    would a 1.5 volt electronic device that measures capacitance to turn on or off a regulator that controls water flow affect a defibrillator or pacemaker?
    Another way to ask this,
    A kitchen faucet that is touch sensitive would be safe or not safe for a heart patient who has defibrillator and pacemaker?
