Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator Nursing Care Plan



Ref: CP096

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Nursing Care Plan

An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) continuously monitors the heartbeat and delivers extra beats or electrical shocks to restore a normal heart rhythm when necessary.

The ICD can be programmed for low-energy pacing therapy, which responds to mild disruptions in heartbeat, cardioversion therapy where a higher energy shock is delivered to deal with a more serious heart rhythm problem, or defibrillation therapy which is the strongest form of electrical therapy used to restore a normal heartbeat.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
