The general public is invited to learn more about ICD (Internal Cardiac Defibrillator).
For more information and to RSVP call 727-869-5498 or toll free 855-534-4325, or visit our website at RMCHealth.com. The ICD is an implantable electronic device designed to monitor heart rhythm and determine if it is abnormal and needs correction. If the ICD senses that the rhythm is abnormal, it will deliver an “internal” shock to the heart to correct the problem. The unit then resets itself.
