Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators Answered

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators

I just saw an advertisement for this thing..... It's different than a pacemaker and to be honest, I had no idea such things existed.... It's interesting (for me at least) because my family history has this problem among a few other heart problems. My grandfather had bypass surgery when it was new (late 60's/early 70's).... three of them over his lifetime - the third heat attack (I think it was #3) is what got him.

Just exciting medical stuff that for some reason they felt it necessary to advertise as if it was a new drug o.0

What can I say :P Even though I didn't know about it... I think it's significant that it was being advertised as if it were a new drug :P
