Dawn Service to commemorate 100 years of ANZAC Greenslopes’ cardiologists implant new world first subcutaneous defibrillator

Greenslopes Private Hospital is one of a few Queensland hospitals that has implanted the new world-first S-ICD™ implantable defibrillator system for patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest.

Cardiologists, Drs Karen Phillips and Michael Jones completed their first procedure to implant the new subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator (S-ICD) at Greenslopes Private Hospital in May this year.

Dr Phillips said that the device has only been available in Australia since late 2014, and is an exciting advancement offering patients a less invasive procedure than the traditional transvenous implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) in which the leads are fed into the heart through a vein and attached to the heart wall.
