An ICD is a device implanted in the body of a patient whose heartbeats are abnormal and can cause them to faint, experience sudden cardiac arrest or other life-threatening conditions. This device detects abnormal rhythm of the heart and helps patients to take their heart rate to normal. It is used in patients suffering from ventricular arrhythmia, ventricular fibrillation, and cardiac arrest. ICD is the first-line treatment for such diseases. It is made up of a pulse generator which includes a battery and several leads or wires. The pulse generator is inserted under the skin in the chest area or just below the collarbone and the leads are inserted into the heart. The main benefit of having an ICD device combo surgery is that it is not an open-heart surgery, can be performed while the patient is asleep in a couple of hours. When ICD finds an abnormal heart rhythm, it delivers an electric shock to the heart that restores the heart to normal rhythm.
Turkey has been investing huge sums of money in building its medical tourism. Hence, the hospitals in Turkey offer a fair price for the ICD Combo Device Surgery. The Turkish government has also been taking special initiatives to provide translational facilities to allow proper communication. Translational services in English, German, Arabic, and Russian are provided when you connect with a hospital or a clinic. Due to affordable medical treatment, cheaper cost of living and well-qualified and highly experienced doctors and surgeons, Turkey is becoming an important medical destination in the world.
The modern cost of ICD Combo Device Surgery is quite lower than treatment in other countries. The cost of treatment depends on the type of hospital you choose, type of surgery, type of sedation or anesthesia to be used, patient’s diagnosis and general health. The hospitals in Turkey start the treatment timely and promptly, eliminating the need for preliminary waiting.
Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a small device placed under the skin to keep track of the heartbeat. A defibrillator implant is useful in preventing sudden death and abrupt cardiac arrest in patients who may not have suffered a heart attack, but are at its risk.
A heart fibrillator surgery can be required in adults, teens and in unfortunate cases, children too. Any cardiologist can recommend defibrillator procedure if an individual suffers from arrhythmia. An ICD pacemaker is very good at treating life-threatening problems, such as ventricular arrhythmias.
Some forms of arrhythmias make the ventricles either quiver frequently or beat too fast. People who have earlier suffered from a ventricular arrhythmia before or had a heart attack that previously damaged the electrical system of the heart are at a higher risk of ventricular arrhythmias in the future.
People who have fortunately survived a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) are often recommended an ICD pacemaker surgery. Even for those who have specific heart conditions that put them at higher risk for SCA can also be recommended defibrillator procedure. Some of the common causes of arrhythmias include the following:
Some of the noticeable symptoms of arrhythmia include the following:
An ICD pacemaker device monitors the heartbeat at every moment and if required, it delivers an extra beat or gives an electrical shock to restore a normal heart rhythm. Another implantable device may be combined with it to control abnormal heart rhythms.
The defibrillator procedure can be performed on an outpatient or inpatient basis. Depending on the experience and preference of the doctor, the procedure can slightly vary.
After removal of jewelry and accessories and change into the hospital gown, the patient is required to empty their bladder. An IV line is started in the hand or arm before the procedure so that medicines and fluids can be injected later.
The patient is closely monitored before the surgery and it is necessary to inform about any discomfort that is felt after AICD placement. Some amount of chest pain is normal. Vital signs are monitored and the easily digestible food is given for a few days.You will be discharged when the breathing and heart rate stabilizes. Within a few weeks or so, you can resume a normal life with some restrictions on movement as advised by the doctor. Driving has to be avoided until the doctor approves of it.
Specific instruction has to be followed regarding bathing and dressing. Regular evaluation of ICD is required at a certain frequency. A duly filled card will be given at the time of discharge, which must be carried by you. You must inform the security personnel during airport screening or mall screening that you have an ICD installed. You must also avoid being close to heavy motors or strong magnetic and electromagnetic fields.
You must notify your doctor if you feel feverish, palpitations, or have severe chest pain during the recovery period or at any point of time. You must discard completely discard the habit of carrying the mobile in your chest pocket.
