Do you know your atrial fibrillation triggers, or think that you might?

Could you help us with some afib trigger research by taking this survey?

March 13, 2017

  • Summary: Do you know your atrial fibrillation triggers? Help with some patient-centered research into afib triggers.
  • Reading time: 1-2 minutes

The University of California at San Francisco has received a grant to do research into afib triggers and StopAfib.org is a research partner in this study.

The research will use a method known as an N-of-1 experiment. This is effectively a clinical trial in a single individual. We will use this N-of-1 design to help us identify individuals’ atrial fibrillation triggers.  

This research will significantly impact the health of those with afib and will advance personalized and patient-centered research.

If you have paroxysmal (intermittent) atrial fibrillation and know your triggers, or suspect certain triggers, please help by taking this survey to share your personal triggers. Depending on how many triggers you have, it should take 20 minutes or less.

This survey will help us develop a list of possible triggers. Since triggers vary from individual to individual, and may include alcohol, sleeplessness, stress, caffeine, foods, exercise, and many other things, if each patient’s triggers could be identified, they might be avoided to prevent afib.

We will use this information to design the study. Patients will be able to select which triggers they wish to test as part of this N-of-1 study. (We will announce the availability of participation in the actual study once all the pieces are in place.)
