ICD firing

 Mine revived me from a cardiac arrest about 5 weeks ago with 4 shocks, 3 from VFib.  I've had mine just over 3 years and has paced me out of many ventricular arrhythmias.  

 

More info would be helpful RF

like why you had ICD implanted?  Hopefully you have consulted a doctor for advice and had a thorough check of your device ?  Were you aware of experiencing any symptoms at all, like breathlessness, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, palpitations beforehand to indicate that all was not well  ?  

Islandgirl thank goodness your ICD fired appropriately.  Have you ever experienced a misfiring of your device for no apparent reason ?

from someone who has experienced the shocks fully concious and aware of everything, i feel sorry if your ICD misfires

Sometimes a device must be tuned a few times before it is right. My cardiologist said it is like fine tuning a car.
