Defibrillator function and implantation

Abstract

The development of the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is primarily the result of pioneering work by Michel Mirowski. First-generation devices consisted of a large generator placed in an abdominal pocket capable only of high-energy shocks. In the 25 years since the first implantation in humans (1), advances in technology have resulted in significantly smaller devices, with sophisticated detection algorithms and tiered therapies. Despite these advances, the primary goal of the ICD continues to be the rapid and effective treatment of ventricular arrhythmias.
