Abstracts
Implantable cardioverter defi brillators (ICDs) are the most effective treatment for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias, reducing mortality in patients at a high risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Although physical benefi ts of ICD are unquestionable, ICD implantation is a stressful event for patients. It may cause problems in adaptation to the device and deteriorate patient quality of life (QOL). At the same time QOL is infl uenced by cardiac disease, as well as by psychosocial
adjustment to the changed life situation. ICD recipients commonly experience fear, anxiety and depression, which may occur as a result of concern about their health, lack of understanding how the ICD works, activates and feels, and unpredictability of receiving ICD shocks. ICD-related fears and concerns, especially about the often painful ICD discharges, have been identifi ed as a major determinant of psychological distress and impaired QOL. Also, stress and anxiety can potentiate pathological processes that increase the risk of SCD. The objective of this paper is to present a peculiar case of a young woman having experienced frequent ICD activations, the impact of the device implantation on her psychological status, and how educating others helped her cope with the life with ICD.
