ICD Therapy Assessment Tool

Certain type of arrhythmias can be life threatening and cause sudden cardiac death. That is why many doctors recommend implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) therapy. Our interactive tool helps determine whether ICD therapy is indicated for you.

Is the ICD therapy right for you?

The tool asks you several simple questions, considers your answers, and tells you whether a consultation with your cardiologist is recommended.
