ICD Information
An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a small, electronic, potentially lifesaving device that is implanted inside the body. An ICD continuously monitors a patient's heartbeat. If it senses a dangerous, rapid heart rhythm, it delivers one or more pulses or shocks to the heart to restore a more normal rhythm. Los Angeles Cardiology Associates implants approximately 150 ICDs per year. Patients are monitored in our ICD clinic every three months to make sure that the ICD is functioning correctly. Annelie Brinkley is our ICD specialist, and will see you at each of your device follow-up appointments.

If you have any questions concerning your device, please call her at (213) 977-0419. To learn more about your device, you can also explore the following websites: www.medtronic.com, or www.guidant.com, depending on the make and manufacturer of the device.
