After COVID-19, when can you safely have a procedure?

When to consider a procedure following the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

June 11, 2020

  • Summary: When to consider a procedure following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) for those who are living with atrial fibrillation.
  • Reading time: 2 minutes

As the world slowly opens back up, you may be uncertain about when it’s safe to go to the doctor’s office or have a procedure. 

You may have questions and concerns about whether now is the “right” time to get scheduled for a procedure…and we’d like to help answer those questions and address your concerns.

If you have afib and are considering having a catheter ablation (done by an electrophysiologist), or if you had a catheter ablation scheduled before the COVID-19 pandemic, we would appreciate you sharing your input.

To learn more about your thoughts, we have put together a survey.

Once we have gathered responses, we will work with our industry partners and some afib doctors to create webinars to address your concerns.

Here’s the link to the survey.

In the survey, once you get through a few basic demographic questions (age, gender, and type of afib), there will be about a dozen questions about your concerns in relation to going back to the doctor and having a catheter ablation procedure—some will be multiple-choice, and some will ask for more insights. We expect it to take about five minutes for you to complete.

We’ll keep confidential any personal information you share.

Again, your responses to this survey will help us address your concerns and questions as the world slowly opens back up. We would so appreciate you taking the time to fill it out.
