Air Entrapment Causing Inappropriate Shock From a Subcutaneous Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator

Ying Chi Yang, Thein Tun Aung, Steven J. Bailin, Troy E. Rhodes

Abstract


Subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) is an accepted alternative to conventional transvenous devices. Their efficacy in arrhythmia management is comparable to ICDs. However, those devices also have limitations such as lack of anti-tachycardia pacing capability or higher occurrence of device oversensing associated with inappropriate shocks. Air entrapment inside one or more of subcutaneous pockets has been reported as one of uncommon causes of device malfunction. It is important to recognize the wandering or drifting baseline signals during device interrogation for timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
