According to its description, the video was “taped in the friendly setting of an ICD support group” and included “easy-to-understand answers.”
Gee, I am so glad they dumbed it down for us patients.
In this 20 sec clip, a “patient” raises his hand and asks the doctor “what happens during these follow up sessions?" The patient is referring to the follow-up visits when the device gets interrogated.
The doctor then explains it in the most condescending tone possible:
“Well, we use a sort of ‘magic’ wand that we hold over the ICD implant spot. This… ‘wand’ is about the size and shape of a normal remote control device…”
Thank God for magic! Watch.
