I noticed ICD's mentioned in a few of the older posts on the team & thought maybe a topic about them might be in order.
I was just wondering how many of our team members have an ICD. What has been your experience with it? Have you had any therapies from the unit? What has been your experience with the device?
My ICD is a Marquis made by Medtronic. Hopefully this link will take you to a page on the Medtronic site that will give you some information about ICD's. http://tinyurl.com/qkchg9
My ICD was implanted Sept 2003 following a heart attack in June of that year. There was a recall on my original device & it had to be replaced in March 2005. Following the replacement procedure my patient alert started going off & I had to have yet another surgery in Aug 2005 to correct the lead that had come disconnected. All has been smooth sailing since that last surgery. No therapies & a good report with each interrogation.
All things are possible with God.
