Sydneysiders: learn more about ICDs at group meeting

Find out more about ICDs with cardiologist Dr David Whalley when he talks on Thurs 26 July at the next ICD Group Meeting at Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH).

RNSH cardiologist Dr David Whalley will give you an interesting overview of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), how they work and how technology has progressed over the past 30 years.

The ICD group meetings run by RNSH usually give you a chance to ask the guest speaker any questions you may have. It’s also a great opportunity to chat to other people with an ICD.
