ICD Support Group

We facilitate a support group for patients who have been diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening heart condition that requires an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD). The support group meets every other month, March through December. Each session offers an educational theme on the latest research-based information to help improve participants’ quality of life.

Meetings focus on a variety of ICD-related topics, including:

  • Traveling with your ICD
  • Exercise
  • A heart-healthy diet
  • The role of a caregiver
  • Psychosocial concerns
  • Sudden cardiac death risk factors
  • Performing compressions during CPR and using an automatic external defibrillator
  • Ejection fraction
