What is ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator)  implantation?

An ICD is a battery-powered device placed under the skin that keeps track of your heart rate. Thin wires connect the ICD to your heart. If an abnormal heart rhythm is detected the device will deliver an electric shock to restore a normal heartbeat if your heart is beating chaotically and much too fast Studies have shown ICDs to have a role in preventing cardiac arrest in high-risk patients who haven't had, but are at risk for, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias.

Your doctor may recommend an ICD if you are at the risk of a life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia because of having:

  • Had a ventricular arrhythmia
  • Had a heart attack
  • Survived a sudden cardiac arrest
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Brugada syndrome
  • A congenital heart disease or other underlying conditions for sudden cardiac arrest
