An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is a medical device for cardiac stimulation, intended to treat certain cardiac pathologies
. Positioned in cardiac cavities, the probes of the defibrillator permanently analyze the heart rate and stimulate the muscle if necessary. This type of machine may have one or several probes. A single-chamber defibrillator has only one probe, a double chamber has two, and a triple chamber has three. The ICD mainly anticipates the risk of a recurring cardiac complication
