An implantable defibrillator is an electronic device implanted in the body and intended to prevent cardiac arrest from severe ventricular tachycardia. An electrode is connected between the heart and a tiny computer in the defibrillator. The computer monitors the heartbeat, and if it detects an arrhythmia, it activates a built-in pacemaker to restabilize the heart’s rhythm. If that fails, it delivers a small defibrillating electrical jolt to the heart. In an extreme case, it resorts to a far stronger jolt to reset the heart rate.

In February, 2005, Metronic announced that several of its implantable defibrillators can suddenly fail because they contain defective batteries. A failure in their device can result in sudden death. The bad batteries were placed into their devices in 2001, 2002, and 2003. If you are a loved one has been injured by a Metronic heart defibrillator you should contact a Metronic injury law firm immediately. An experienced and knowledgeable Metronic accident attorney will be able to provide you with the proper guidance, counseling and advise that you will need to move forward with your claim.
