ICD Connection: Living with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. A collection of stories from patients and their families.


ICD Connection contains a collection of stories from patients and their families who are living with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator. The stories highlight how the ICD implant affected their life, their challenges and struggles along the way, and share what was and wasn’t helpful to their moving forward and adjusting to life with an ICD.

The opportunity for these patients to share their experiences and interact with peers who have had similar experiences can facilitate personal growth and wellness on their life journey with an ICD.
