1/ A long thread on LifeVest. I promise it will be entertaining. If you find any inaccuracies please let me know.

Paper of VEST published here - will discuss background to WCD and #VEST but not the trial itself nejm.org/doi/full/10.10… 2/ In 2001, FDA gave approval to Lifecor for the first WCD. Later Lifecor was acquired by Zoll (2004 agreement, 2006 acquisition). Zoll maintains a registry for prescribed LifeVests. But lets go back to the FDA approval process.
