An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is a small battery-powered device placed in your chest to monitor your heart rhythm and detect irregular heartbeats. An ICD can deliver electric shocks via one or more wires connected to your heart to fix an abnormal heart rhythm.
Why it's done?
You've likely seen TV shows in which hospital workers "shock" an unconscious person out of cardiac arrest with electrified paddles. An ICD does the same thing only internally and automatically when it detects an abnormal heart rhythm.
How an ICD works?
Depending on the problem with your heartbeat, your ICD could be programmed for: Low-energy pacing. A higher-energy shock.
