Background Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), despite an unequivocal clinical benefit, are known to have a complex psychosocial impact on the patients. ICD shocks and the resultant psychobiological changes are known to contribute to increased levels of anxiety, depression, and post-shock stress symptoms in these patients. Phantom shock is a patient-reported perception of an ICD shock in the absence of any actual shock; however, its pathophysiological understanding is poor.

Background: Patients receiving an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) report various types anddegree of sleep disruptions, but little is known regarding their characteristics, duration, and associatedfactors. The purposes of this study were: (1) to describe the effect of a psychoeducational interventionon sleep quality and daytime sleepiness, (2) to describe patterns of sleep over time, and (3) to identifypredictors of poor sleep in an ICD population.Methods: A randomized longitudinal i...

The objective of this multicenter study was to evaluate psychological functioning and disease-related quality of life (DRQoL) in pediatric patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) in The Netherlands. Thirty patients were investigated; the mean age was 16.3 years, and the mean duration of implantation was 3.6 years. To assess psychological problems, three domains of the Symptom Checklist (SCL-90-R) were administered to the 25 patients >13 years old. DRQoL was assessed with a ...

Cardiology professional societies have recommended that patients with cardiovascular implantable electronic devices complete advance directives (ADs). However, physicians rarely discuss end of life handling of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and standard AD forms do not address the presence of ICDs. We conducted a telephone survey of 278 patients with an ICD from a large, academic hospital. The average period since implantation was 5.15 years. More than 1/3 (38%) had been shocked...

textabstractAimsA paucity of studies in implantable cardioverterdefibrillator (ICD) patients has examined gender disparities in patient-reported outcomes, such as anxiety and quality of life (QoL). We investigated (i) gender disparities in anxiety and QoL and (ii) the magnitude of the effect of gender vs. New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class (III/IV), ICD shock, and Type D personality on these outcomes. Methods and resultsImplantable cardioverterdefibrillator patients (n 718; 81 me...

Background:鈥侾atients receiving implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) often have severely impaired left ventricular function and a poor prognosis. Having an ICD in situ effectively denies them the possibility of a quick, arrhythmic death. It is still unclear if and when the end of life and device deactivation should be discussed with patients and how much patients want to know prior to ICD implantation. Methods:鈥侾atients with an active ICD for chronic heart failure were interviewed regar...

Abstract Objective The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is used to treat life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and in the prevention of sudden cardiac death. A significant proportion of ICD patients experience psychological symptoms including anxiety , depression or both, which in turn can impact adjustment to the device. The objective of this systematic review was to assess the prevalence of anxiety and depression or symptoms of anxiety and depression among adults with ICDs. Meth...

A subset of patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) reports psychological distress and poor quality of life (QoL). Gender is one of the factors that has been proposed to explain individual differences in these outcomes. In this viewpoint, we (1) review the evidence for gender disparities in psychological distress and QoL in ICD patients by means of a systematic review, and (2) provide recommendations for future research and clinical implications. A systematic search of the ...

Studies on psychological morbidity in patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) have focused on mean differences rather than intraindividual differences. Such an approach masks the chronicity of symptoms in individual patients and the potential differences in cardiac outcomes. We examined the prevalence and correlates of persistent depression using an intraindividual approach. Consecutive patients who had undergone ICD implantation (n = 386; 79.3% men) completed a set of vali...
