Defibrillators - Surgery for ICDs

Automated External Defibrillator (AED)  Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)  Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator (WCD) 

Placing an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) requires minor surgery, which usually is done in a hospital. Typically, the ICD is placed under your breastbone or along your ribs. In infants, it can be placed in the abdomen. With some devices, your doctor may first thread one or two sensor wires through your blood vessels into the chambers of your heart. With others, a single sensor wire is placed along the breastbone. The doctors will use a monitor to guide the wires and put them in the right place.
