Treatment Options for Side Effects of Guidant Implanted DefibrillatorsFREE Case Review
Having a defective defibrillator is a potential medical emergency. An arrhythmia can strike at any time, with little to no warning, and is usually fatal within a few minutes. Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators are designed to counteract fibrillation, but a few Guidant brand ICDs are known to have faulty construction which may prevent them from working properly. Depending on the type and model of the device, replacement or reprogramming may be necessary to ensure the health and safety of the patient. Consult your doctor immediately for the appropriate course of action.
