Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) or (SICD)

Service:

An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (SICD) is a small, battery-operated device. The ICD can be permanently placed inside the chest or just under the skin to monitor  heart rate and rhythm to detect any rapid and/or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias). When the ICD detects a rapid heart rate, it delivers energy to the heart, converting it back to a regular rhythm and has the ability to pace the heart when needed.
