Abstract

Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) are state of the art devices for the primary and secondary prevention of sudden cardiac death.1 As a result, the use of ICDs has increased remarkably over the past years. Since they are life saving devices and because dysfunction can cause fatal pro-arrhythmia2, monitoring of their proper functioning is vital for patient welfare.
