earlier this week my husbank (40) icd went off for the first time. Then it went off again and again. By the time police/ ambulance got here (which was very fast) it had gone off 4 times. It went off another 4 times in ER until they could find magnet to get it to stop. The maker of device rep came to hospital to diagnose device and determine the lead fractured causing "noise" that made the device think his heart was in VT = shocking. The rep was great- turned device off and got transported to bigger hospital where we originally had it implanted. The implanted new device and new leads. Home now but he is obviously very concerned its going to go off again.
Has this happened to any one else? If yes, how was your experience with new device?
His device was originally put in 2003.
