Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That can be due to the any of the following causes:

1. Th device battery is nearing its end. Usually the noise goes off 2-6 months before scheduled batter change time.

2. One of the leads of the device may be malfunctioning.

3. Your device may have delivered a shock to correct a serious arrhythmia.

Given these possibilities, you should go to the ER if you do not hear back from your doctor within an hour.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
