摘要

Automatic intplantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD) was commercially available for use in patients with malignant ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation since its meeting with FDA approval in 1985. The number of AICD implantation has increased year by year worldwide. It was allowed to be used in clinical setting in Taiwan by the Department of Health in April 1997. Physicians may come across patients with an implanted AICD undergoing surgery unrelated to cardiac issues more frequently. It is also a new challenge to anesthesiologists who must make pre-operative evaluation, maintenance during operative period and post-operative re-evaluation of the AICD function. We bring forward here for discussion a 72-year-old male patient who underwent non-cardiac surgery with AICD implantation under general anesthesia. The anesthetic precautions of patients with the device are also touched.
