Prepare for Your Implantable Defibrillator Procedure
Your doctor will provide you with complete information to help you prepare for your procedure and recovery.
Your EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System consists of a pulse generator and an electrode, which are placed just under the skin, leaving the heart and blood vessels untouched.
How to Prepare
Your healthcare provider will give you specific instructions about how to prepare for your ICD implantation procedure. Be sure to follow these instructions carefully.
In most cases, a person who has had the EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System implanted is able to leave the hospital the next day. Full recovery from the defibrillator implant procedure usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
