Lately there have been questions, comments, and requests for atrial fibrillation information that already exists in the StopAfib.org news story archives.
So with September being Atrial Fibrillation Month, it seems appropriate to call attention to the important afib documents and stories in our News archives. You’ll generally find there stories that are more than 3 months old.
You may want to peruse many of the stories there. I’d especially like to call your attention to two of the most important documents for anyone with afib — you will find them both at the bottom of the page as they were our first news stories:
- 2006 Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Atrial Fibrillation—ACC/AHA/ESC — Guidelines to assist healthcare providers in managing and treating atrial fibrillation patients
- Expert Consensus Statement on Catheter and Surgical Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation—HRS/EHTA/ECAS — Guidelines from the Heart Rhythm Society Task Force on Catheter Ablation and Surgical Ablation (maze and mini maze surgery)
The first document is important for all afib patients, and the second is important for anyone considering catheter ablation, maze surgery, or mini maze surgery now or in the future.
On another subject, thanks for your help in spreading the word in September that it is Atrial Fibrillation Month by sending friends and family to:
