Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator
An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is a small battery-powered electrical impulse generator which is implanted in patients who are at risk of sudden cardiac death due to ventricular fibrillation. The device is programmed to detect cardiac arrhythmia and correct it by delivering a jolt of electricity. The links shown on this page feature the key word ′Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator’ in their stories:
