Including those with compromised cardiac function.

Wearable cardioverter defibrillators are used by people who use a higher risk of sudden cardiac arrest, including those with compromised cardiac function, expected heart transplant or a disease which is prevented or delayed them from receiving an implanted defibrillator.

About 5,000 patients are using portable defibrillators at any one time, usually for about 60 days, said Vincent N. Mosesso Jr. Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and lead investigator of the study. Died patients, the portable defibrillator is a non-invasive ‘ insurance ‘ against sudden arrest during their most vulnerable time, he said. Continue reading
