End of Life

There may come a time towards end of life when it is most appropriate and comfortable to turn off the shock function of your ICD.

This is to prevent the distressing experience of receiving shocks not deemed medically appropriate. In this instant, the pacing function of the device will remain working and the shock function can be turned off without removing the device. This is a decision that is made with you and will be discussed with you.
