Guys.. I had the techs from Medtronic overclock my heart today to 125%.. I almost got a wood.. Anyway that might have been from the hot doctor that was reading the results of my Ipod sized defib/ pacemaker inside my chest. Battery was okay the leads were okay and the unit is working fine. No bad readings for a year.. Thanks for the support guys.. You are all great Troops..
Here is my Permanent Ipod..
mine is the top one.

The Implantable defibrillators shown to the left are examples from the three major manufacturers we use. The Medtronic Device has a standard defibrillator lead attached (it has metal coils on the lead through which a shock can be delivered to the heart). The Boston Scientific device is in fact a biventricular defibrillator (hence the larger clear plastic “header” on the device), to which a third lead, positioned on the left side of the heart, can be attached, not only to deal with heart rhythm problems, but also to treat heart failure in some patients. All these devices can now be implanted at this hospital.
