Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

ICD’s are very similar to pacemakers, but are slightly larger in size and are used in situations where patients have the potential to develop lethal arrhythmias, such as heart failure and certain congenital conditions. These devices are capable of not only monitoring the heartbeat and rhythm but also of delivering high-energy shocks in cases of life-threatening arrhythmias, jolting the heart into beating normally again.
