Description

The purpose of this study is to determine whether it is safe to discharge patients the same day after an ICD implant.  An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is an electronic, battery powered medical device designed to help keep the heart beat regular.  If the heart is beating too fast, it will deliver electrical pulses or shocks to the heart muscle to help the heart beat regularly again.
