Implanted Cardioverter Defibrillator

An implanted cardioverter defibrillator is a small device that regulates your heartbeat. It uses electrical pulses or shocks to control arrhythmias. This small device is inserted into your chest or abdomen. It is bigger than a pacemaker and actually has a pacemaker in it. The device works to stop life-threatening rapid heartbeats and the pacemaker within it will activate if the heartbeat is too slow.
