from American Heart Association via Science Codex
The elderly may benefit from implantable cardioverter defibrillators as much as younger people, according to new research. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a small battery-powered device placed under the skin of the chest which delivers electrical impulses to restore a normal heartbeat if it detects a dangerous abnormal rhythm.
