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:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"The Doe Report is a visual feast of medical information for personal injury lawyers."

Aaron R. Larson, Esq.

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."
