aNYONE HAVE AN ICD FIRE FOR NO REASON AT ALL?
Mine revived me from a cardiac arrest about 5 weeks ago with 4 shocks, 3 from VFib. I've had mine just over 3 years and has paced me out of many ventricular arrhythmias.
like why you had ICD implanted? Hopefully you have consulted a doctor for advice and had a thorough check of your device ? Were you aware of experiencing any symptoms at all, like breathlessness, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, palpitations beforehand to indicate that all was not well ?
Islandgirl thank goodness your ICD fired appropriately. Have you ever experienced a misfiring of your device for no apparent reason ?
from someone who has experienced the shocks fully concious and aware of everything, i feel sorry if your ICD misfires
You know you're wired when...
You participate in the Pacer Olympics.
In fact after the final "tweaks" of my pacemaker programming at the one year check up it is working so well that I forget I have it.
