Overview

AICD (Automatic Implantable Cardioverter- Defibrillator), is a small electronic device implantable inside the chest, which helps to monitor and correct an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia).
These devices are mainly used to treat serious and life-threatening arrhythmia.
There are two ways to treat Arrhythmia by Defibrillator:
CARDIOVERSION: In this procedure, the device tries to stop the abnormal rhythm, with a burst of high-speed pacing, known as cardioversion.
DEFIBRILLATION: This procedure is chosen after the failure of cardioversion. In this procedure, the device delivers an electric shock to the heart to reset its rhythm.

Symptoms

  • Intense dizziness.
  • Sudden collapse with loss of consciousness.
  • The patient encounters cardiac arrest or abnormal heart rhythm that has caused the patient to pass-out.
