In some cases, AFib patients have to put a defibrillator in their chest. They can feel the implanted device under the skin, but it generally doesn’t cause much discomfort. Some people with a defibrillator in their chest feel secure, they regard it as a guardian for their life. But others may feel worried and anxious, because they don’t know when the shock will come. In fact, defibrillators are not foolproof. They make mistakes sometimes, but at least it won’t threaten your life.   Related FAQs: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=40 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=42 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=1247
