Implanted defibrillators are not always safe

An "implantable defibrillator" sounds like a great idea. It's an electronic device that a surgeon implants in your body to help you overcome the problems associated with life-threatening kinds of cardiac arrhythmia (also known as irregular heartbeat). As the heart goes out of rhythm, the defibrillator gives the heart a mild shock to reset the rhythm back to normal.
