The team at Medmastery are providing LITFL readers with a series of FOAMed courses from across their website.
For the next few weeks, we’ll be posting videos from the ICD Essentials course. Today’s video explores the Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD), and how they differ from brady pacemakers.
- Who qualifies for an ICD?
- What is ATP (anti-tachycardia pacing)?
- Defibrillation for VF and VT when ATP fails

“I’m an International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE) certified specialist in cardiac pacemakers and ICDs, and the chief cardiac physiologist in a pacemaker clinic that carries out over 4,000 pacemaker checks per year. My passion is education, and I created THE PAD website, a popular resource for cardiology information, and wrote the book Pacemakers Made Easy.”
