Automated Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Services at 326 Washington Street, Norwich

Automated Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator

This is a small generator-powered electrical impulse device that is implanted and programmed to detect certain cardiac arrhythmias and correct them by delivering a preset electrical impulse.

Under the direction of a cardiologist, the Backus Cardiac Catheterization Lab performs various tests that can evaluate the anatomy and function of your heart. Utilizing special x-ray and imaging equipment the cardiologist and the cath lab certified staff provide the supportive care necessary for diagnostic procedures, such as left and right heart cardiac catheterizations, transesophageal echocardiograms, electrical cardioversions, insertions of pacemakers and/or automated implantable cardioverter defibrillators (AICD’s), and generator changes.
