Get in Rhythm, Stay in Rhythm Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference
See all conference videos, and download the slides
Here, Dr. Eric Prystowsky discusses treatments for atrial fibrillation, including rate control and rhythm control, as well as use of anticoagulants to prevent afib-related strokes.
At the conclusion of his presentation, StopAfib.org founder Mellanie True Hills bestowed upon Dr. Prystowsky the first ever “Advocate for Patients” Award for his work in bringing afib patients to the table where decisions are made about our care and his ongoing quest to “Preserve the Brain” through educating doctors and patients.
Learn how to get in rhythm and stay in rhythm by watching videos of the Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference that was held in Dallas on November 2, 2013. At the conference, presentations by leading afib experts provided atrial fibrillation patients, families, and caregivers with the information to manage afib and get appropriate care.

I found Dr. Eric to be interesting. I could have used more showing of his charts so I could write them down.
Also more detail into the different types of ablation. For example Barnes Hospital here in St. Louis has their own method. It would have helped me with any decision I may be forced to make.
Never been shocked out of a-fib. Now years after (I am now 86) if is too late, I believe to even consider that. Am I wrong?
Sincerely, Mike Resnick
Hi Mike, if you’d like to look at each slide more, you can pause the video before continuing. The ablation videos are still being processed and will be posted soon. Regarding being shocked, or cardioverted, that is something to discuss with your doctors, and it is decided on a case-by-case basis.
