Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs)

For patients at risk for potentially life threatening arrhythmias, implanted cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) can be used to continuously monitor the heart rhythm. These implanted devices automatically function as pacemakers for too-slow heart rhythms and deliver life-saving shocks if they detect dangerously fast heart rhythms.
