    Was it an appropriate zap? Sounds like it's a really good thing he has it!

    My son's ICD FIRED

    Yes it is true folks my son's ICD fired Friday night, he went to the ICD cliic this morning to confirm it, poor guy has only had his ICD for three weeks now and it has zapped him once and aborted a zap and paced him 4 times in the past 2 weeks, it was checked a week after he got it and there was nothing recorded, so all this has happen within the past 2 weeks

    they have reset his ICD and increased his med from 120 to 240mg a day
    he takes Cardizem, so maybe this will straighten him out
