    Default use of commas in a long sentence

    Could someone let me know if I placed the commas in this sentence correctly?

    I am going to adjust these, but because of the history of cardiomyopathy, and the implantable cardioverter defibrillator I am going to have this interrogated to make sure that she does not note ventricular dysrhythmia.

    I would rather see a comma after defibrillator than after cardiomyopathy.
