Blocks Beta Receptor: A beta blocker is a category of medication that is used for blood pressure control and in heart disease. It blocks the beta adrenergic receptor in the heart and body. The mechanism of action for blood pressure control is not definitively established but is related to the drug decreasing the heart rate, decreasing heart contractility, and blocking the effect of Adrenalin on the blood vessels.

Surgery: An icd (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) is a device implanted under the skin and connects to leads inserted in veins to the heart or occasionally placed surgically directly on the surface of the heart. The icd can be changed out under local anesthesia as an outpatient as long as the leads are functional. Lead change out is done by laser or mechanical extraction under deep anesthesia.

HDL is Good: Hdl or high density lipoprotein and LDL or low density lipoprotein are particles that are important in cholesterol metabolism. Hdl is the "good" particle that pulls cholesterol out of the arterial wall. Ldl is the "bad" particle particularly when it is "dense" or cholesterol laden that allow cholesterol transportation and deposition into the artery wall accelerating atherosclerosis.
