Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

Service:

An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a small, battery-operated device. The ICD can be permanently placed inside you to monitor your 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 your heart, converting it back to a regular rhythm. Implantable cardiac defibrillators are used for those at risk of sudden cardiac death, who have cardiomyopathy, or an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular tachycardia.
