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 hearts 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 hearts 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 hearts 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:
"You and your company are wonderful. Your service, turnaround time, quality and price were better than I could have asked for. Please add me to your long list of satisfied customers."

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."
