An ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) is a device that is placed inside your chest cavity. It monitors your heart and treats irregular heart rhythms with electrical impulses or electric shocks. ICDs are given to people at risk of developing life threatening irregular rhythms. People can have ICDs to treat a number of different conditions. For more information on ICDs please see here
