    thanks gents. had an appointment with the cardio doc. 2 weeks ago. this farcking vest has a recorder on it. they suspect irregular heartbeats - arrythmias. told doc i had a dizzy spell and when it occurred. he pulled up the info and found a span of 8 seconds of no heart beat. didn't believe him (and still don't). he strongly advocated an implanted cardio device (pacemaker/defibrillator). i believe he's a icd salesman. set up a 2nd opinion. he called last friday, told i wasn't ready. (he's got a bad bed side manner). got another call by his associate last tuesday, momma listened in on on phone extension. this guy i could talk to. he described in detail about my codition, and the very real possibity of sudden cardiac DEATH. momma heard that and that settled that. i'm scheduled for tuesday, 1st day available. had to break 2nd opinion due to the dates. i'm not real happy about it.
    they also cut back my meds to help alleviate any problems, and between the war in my head and every little ache and twinge,

    Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator

    It monitors the heart rhythm and if the heart goes into fibrillation, it delivers a shock to restore a normal sinus rhythm.

    This is a more common condition than you might think, and so is the icd.

    I think this is the way to go because if you are alone, this will do the job for you, and you won't be relying on good samaritans or an EMS trip.

    This sounds a LOT like a condition that my dad had.

    They were talking pacemaker (maybe an ICD, he doesn't communicate well)

    They wound up doing some sort of shock procedure and he said, at the time, it made him feel 100% better.

    Like I said, he doesn't communicate well and it doesn't help that they don't talk to me at all anymore, but I do remember that.

    I remember feeling the pulse in his wrist and it would stop for a second or two then restart.

    It's spooky.

    From what I know, the one thing you can't do with an icd is stand in front of your microwave oven. The icd's don't like microwaves.

    Other than that, you should be fine.
