Title: Vest Prevention of Early Sudden Death Trial - LifeVest
Description: The LifeVest is a wearable defibrillator that a patient can wear until he/she is able to receive a permanent implanted defibrillator. This trial is looking to see if wearing a LifeVest after a heart attack until it is determined whether or not the patient will receive a defibrillator will improve patient outcomes.
In general, this study is looking for participants who:
- Are in the hospital after having a heart attack
- Have reduced heart function as a result of their heart attack
- Are willing to wear the LifeVest for at least 20 hours per day
- Can read and understand English
