Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)

Also known as: Defibrillator implants, Pacemaker implants, Automatic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, ICD, AICD
An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), also known as an automatic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (AICD), is a small device that doctors use to watch for and fix life-threatening abnormal heart rhythms. The doctor surgically implants the defibrillator under the skin, usually below the left collarbone. A wire threaded through a large vein connects the device to the heart.
