Re: Some reading for everyone that has a Medtronic.

I've had a Medtronic Secura for about 6 months now, and it's been working fine. I am especially happy with thier patient support; they have answered everything I've asked. Also, the 2 field support people I've dealt with have been great. I have no complaints.

I'd heard of all the warnings before implantation; I thought anything that buzzed, whirred or clicked could be emanating evil for an ICD! Now I realize that it may well be not that bad after all. We will measure...
