WASHINGTON (AP) Vice President Dick Cheney will undergo a minor surgical procedure Saturday to replace the battery in the special pacemaker he has in his chest, a spokeswoman said.

"During the vice president's annual physical examination in June, testing of his implantable cardioverter-defibrillator indicated that the device's battery has reached the level where elective replacement of the device is recommended," Megan McGinn, deputy press secretary for Cheney, said Friday.

She has said doctors must replace the entire device to replace the battery, and that the surgery will be performed at George Washington University Hospital.




I wonder when Skynet will require him to have the chips updated in his positronic brain?

Doctors should replace it with a peacemaker model.

Those things are pretty amazing these days. They have shrunk down to a miniscule size, and I think they even have some that more or less generate their own electricity. They even fit dogs with pacemakers now.

Hmmm, first Bush and now Cheney? What are they being implanted with and why isn't being offered to the rest of us?

I don't know much about (just) pacemakers. But I think they are talking about his defirulator. They include pacemakers and are certainly NOT miniscule. They are about 2" x 3" and feel like you left your cell phone in your shirt pocket.
