Can a person receive both a pacemaker and a defibrillator?
                     





ladybugsmom54601
yes they are now made in one as my husband has the pacedefib and it works great has had it for 4 years now.


helpmom26
they have pacemakers that have defibrillators in it . They call it a icd pacemaker. I have one.

Yes they can, I know because I have one implanted in my chest right now.

The answer is yes. There are special placement protocols for the leads that are attached to the chest with concerns to this very thing.

They are two different things. Pacemaker keeps your heart pumping. Defibuillator is what is used to shock someone that has had a heart attact.


spacye
they do have a pacemaker combined with a defibrillater that can be implanted, the only thing is how old is the person, what is there quality of life going to be if an internal device keeps there heart going, if the person is up and about and active, it is good, as a nurse, i have seen several with trachs and on vents because the pacer/defiber keeps thier heart beating, and that is sad
