My Dad also has one of these. He has been shocked numerous times. All of them being appropriate. He knows when it's coming too. He gets light headed knows he better sit down cause it's coming. I am very thankful for this device and so is my father. He always gets a telephone call within a few hours from his doctor asking him if everything is ok. Amazing that it can send a message to his doctor that soon. Hope everything works out for you Gino as I have seen the old man get shocked and it doesn't look fun.

Glad you'r OK GIno.
If something can be f''ed up by ANY manufactorer.. they will find a way to do it.
It's called "planned obsolesense". If they can sell new parts.. they figure out how..
A 100 year old part will go for a nother 100.. A year old will crap out any second.
Glad you didn't crap out Gino.

Coming to Destin?

Hey, I will be at Destin.
Now that i have my new and improved leads the only thing I have to think about in the back of my mind is In 2 years my defribulator batteries will be shot and then will need to chane everything out. I am really looking forward to that! Why can't they have a plug that comes out of my belly button that i can hook a charger to. Like the battery minder on the boat!

Gino just pictured you hooked up with a wire like a lanyard in your boat.

If they would make a charger.. or a battery that lasts 25 years. (Nasa has batteries that last that long.) they coudn't sell new batteries.
But it's ok. I'll rig one up for yaaa. Even put a Mercedes logo on it.
I have a few extras rasor chords and a doz. cell phone chargers (again "planned obsolesence", since thay change charger fittings every 6 months. Typical)
See you in Destin.. I give you the "package" with the first cocktails at the Ramada.
