Had my ICD fitted in Novemeber.had Cardiac Arrest in December and have felt fine. The last few days it has been beeping at 10.10am. I phoned the Cardiac Dept. to be told it is probably a build up of fluids. Anyone else had this problem ?

Thank you for your replies. I have thought the same..trying to speak to a doctor is almost impossible. Will keep trying.

Do you have capability of sending an interrogation from your ICD? I have a Medtronic and send a carelink report. My EP gets alerted when my fluid level rises to a certain point, and he will text me and ask me to send a transmission.
That is not an appropriate response from your dr's office. Demand an appointment as soon as you can.

How does a device detect fluid levels??

Build up of fluids?

If it is fluid build up, that should not be ignored. You need to be treated before it gets worse and you have more problems.
To me (not a medical professional)...that guess over the phone is not acceptable.
I was told my device did not have a beep function. So when I heard beeping....I thought it was coming from a phone. It turned out it was my device and it beeped every 6 hours which signified a problem.
Your device should be interrogated for answers.
