Abstract
Cet appareil détecte et corrige les battements de cœur dangereusement rapides qui commencent dans la partie inférieure du cœur. Le présent livret traite de la façon dont votre cœur bat, des symptômes courants, de ce qu’est un défibrillateur cardioverteur implantable ou DCI (parfois appelé défibrillateur automatique implantable ou DAI), de son fonctionnement et des différents types de traitement. Vous apprendrez comment vous préparer pour l’implantation de l’appareil. Les soins que vous recevrez durant les premières 24 heures suivant la chirurgie y sont décrits, de même que les activités à éviter au cours des six à huit semaines qui suivront. Vous devrez porter un bracelet MedicAlert®. Les mesures pertinentes à prendre si vous recevez un choc sont précisées, de même que les soins se rattachant à l’incision et les signes d’infection. Il est aussi question de l’utilisation des appareils électriques. Appelez le 911 si vous ressentez les symptômes suivants : impression d’évanouissement imminent, étourdissements, palpitations ou battements de cœur très rapides.
