Is an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Right for You?

Some individuals with tachycardia may be eligible for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), an implantable heart device that will monitor and correct an irregular rhythm.

You may want to speak with your doctor about whether this is an option for you and/or if you should be referred to a heart rhythm specialist such as an electrophysiologist (EP) for a consultation.
