ICDs are devices indicated for patients with repeated episodes of life-threateningdysrhythmias and for some patients with cardiomyopathy. This device monitors the heartbeatand provides an electrical shock similar to that delivered in cardiac defibrillation orcardioversion when a life-threatening rhythm is detected. Most ICDs have the ability to paceas well as defibrillate. The patient is warned to avoid exposure to strong magnetic fields suchas: microwave towers, transformers and electrical transmitters, electrical generators, handheldsecurity devices at airports, and arc welding equipment. The patient should not lean over thealternator of a running car or boat motor. A magnetic field will temporarily inactivate thedevice. Moving away from the magnetic source will restore normal function.
