LifeVest

« Back to Glossary Index

LifeVest is a wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) made by Zoll Medical Corporation. It is a device that is worn by patients at high risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). LifeVest is designed to monitor the patient’s heart rate and rhythm and deliver an electrical shock if a life-threatening heart rhythm is detected. This allows patients to continue with their daily activities while being monitored for SCA, without the need for invasive implantable devices. LifeVest is typically used in patients who have had a heart attack or other cardiac event and are waiting for a permanent solution, such as an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
