Does everyone with an inherited cardiac condition need an ICD or pacemaker?

Not everyone with an inherited cardiac condition is to have a pacemaker or an ICD. It is actually the minority of patients with inherited cardiac conditions that are considered to be at high risk of irregular heartbeats, fainting episodes, and potential sudden cardiac death that receive an ICD or otherwise known as an intracardiac defibrillator. So the majority of individuals that are in the inherited cardiac diseases clinic, they would either get lifestyle modification advice, and it’s pretty simple advice. And those who are considered to be at a bit higher risk, they may get some medication prescribed.
