Abstract

The automatic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator is an electronic device designed to monitor the heart continuously, identify ventricular tachycardias and ventricular fibrillation, and terminate the life-threatening arrhythmias with an internal countershock. This device has been proved to be safe and effective, and its use has led to a significant decrease of arrhythmic mortality in the implantees.
