ICD vibrating - Medtronic DVMC3D4

Hi Folks

I think I ran across a thread on this before, but thought I would ask anyway. Has anyone else experienced vibrations coming from their ICD? No alarm, just a slight vibration that lasts a few seconds and repeats twice. This has happened a few times ...

I've only had this thing a year, so any feedback would be helpful.

Look up your model on the Medtronic website but I think you'll find that it's a low battery warning. It's definitely something that you want to look into as quickly as possible.

It's a feature on some makes and models of devices from various manufacturer's. It's an alert, not always for low battery, to notify you to contact your doctor.

Some of us paid extra to get that feature and time our romantic interludes with it going off. Our partners get s real kick out of it

Nooo ... She Who Must Be Obeyed would kill me. 

The romance part of our marriage has waned due to the fact She is convinced those "interludes" will kill me. *sigh* 

(But I find it quite funny)

Well that's what happens when you let the Life policy lapse.  Currently I'm worth considerably more dead than alive...

Although I fear I lack Robo Pop's gift for humour.

These devices have self checks. Is it the same time everyday? Or around the same time?

I have only noticed it a few times ... and there seem to be no regular pattern that I has noticed.
