Bridging the waiting period with a Wearable Defibrillator Vest: Is a wearable defibrillator (WCD) is indicated after diagnosis of NICM, but before criteria for an ICD are met? It is a common scenario. Criteria for an ICD in patients with new NICM require waiting to assess the EF response to treatment (1). In one abstract appropriate shocks were delivered in 7% of pts with an initial diagnosis of NICM (2) -- higher than might have been predicted, as an ICD study in similar pts found a rate of SCD of 1% per year (2). The level of evidence (3) for use of the WCD during the waiting period is low (4) but the stakes may be high. We need more data and professional guidelines.
