Abstract
This guide is for patients that are being admitted to the Victoria General Hospital for open thoracotomy pulmonary resection surgery for lung cancer treatment. Your surgeon will make a surgical cut between two ribs. The cut will go from the front of your chest wall to your back, passing just underneath your armpit. These ribs will be separated. Your lung on this side will be deflated so that air will not move in and out of it during surgery. Your surgeon may not know how much of your lung needs to be removed until your chest is open and the lung can be seen. After surgery, one or more drainage tubes (chest tubes) will be placed into your chest area to drain out fluids that build up. After the surgery on your lung, your surgeon will close the ribs, muscles, and skin with stitches. The health care team has put together a guide called a Clinical Pathway so you will know what will happen to you before surgery and on a day-to-day basis after surgery. A Clinical Pathway is a general guideline about your care.

Cardiovascular System
Abstract
Un défibrillateur cardioverteur implantable (DCI) détecte et corrige les battements de cœur dangereusement rapides qui commencent dans la partie inférieure du cœur. Cet appareil est également un stimulateur cardiaque, qui peut traiter les rythmes cardiaques lents. Vous devrez subir une intervention chirurgicale pour l’implantation de l’appareil dans votre corps. Ce livret explique comment votre cœur bat, ce qui se passe si vous avez des problèmes de rythme cardiaque, ce qu'est un DCI et ce qui se passera après l'intervention. Des instructions sur le suivi, les soins à domicile et le moment d'appeler votre prestataire de soins de santé primaires ou le 911 sont incluses.
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0241, "Living With Your Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)". An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) finds and corrects dangerous fast heart rates that start in the bottom of your heart. The device is also a pacemaker, which can treat slow heart rates. You will need surgery to have the device placed in your body. This pamphlet explains how your heart beats, what happens if you have problems with your heartbeat, what an ICD is, and what will happen after your procedure. Instructions on follow-up, care at home, and when to call your primary health care provider or 911 are included.
