This is an electrical device that continuously monitors our heartbeat and is implanted inside of the body, ususally under the skin in the upper chest area just below the collarbone. When the device senses a dangerous rapid heart rhythm, it delivers one or more pulses or shocks to the heart and restores a more normal heart rhythm.

An ICD may be a treatment option following a carddiac arrest or a rapid heart rhythm problem that could lead to cardiac arrest. Placement of an ICD may allow a patient more freedom to participate in the activities of daily living.
