Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Your heart pumps oxygenated blood throughout your body. Rhythmic electrical impulses inside your heart cause its muscular walls to contract, ensuring your heart beats steadily. If problems occur with your heart’s electrical system, you may develop an abnormal, potentially life-threatening heartbeat, called arrhythmia. Your doctor may want you to have an implantable cardioverter defibrillator, or ICD, to restore the heart’s normal rhythm and prevent sudden cardiac death. During the procedure, your doctor will thread a small wire through a vein until it reaches your right ventricle. The wires continuously monitor the heart’s rhythm. After verifying the wire is in the correct location and works properly, your doctor will attach the wire to the ICD generator. Then, your doctor will insert the ICD device under the skin of your chest below the collarbone. The battery-powered ICD constantly monitors your heartbeat using a computer. If a life threatening arrhythmia occurs, the ICD delivers an electrical shock to your heart resetting your heartbeat back to normal. The ICD can also be programmed to “pace” the heart and restore its natural rhythm.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

Fritz G. Faerber
Faerber & Anderson, P.C.

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."
