Join us for a Restoring Life’s Rhythm Webinar, Hosted by Medtronic

During National Afib Month, Join us for a Restoring Life’s Rhythm Webinar

For National Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month, I’m excited to moderate two free afib webinars being hosted by Medtronic.

  • The September 20, 2022 webinar features Dr. Amin Al-Ahmad, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiologist at Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia in Austin, TX.
  • The September 24, 2022 webinar features Dr. Ilyas Colombowala, Chairman of cardiology and cardiac surgery at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, ID.

In each webinar, they will share their approaches to detecting, treating, and providing ongoing heart monitoring for their Afib patients. Then you’ll have an opportunity to participate in an open Q&A session that I will moderate.

I hope you can join us.

    I live in England first AFib episode November 2019 (aged 62). Unsuccessful cardioversion in December 2019 (back in rhythm for only 4 days). Went on to Amiodarone then Covid broke out meaning although it successfully restored normal rhythm I stayed on it for too long suffering awful side effects so my consultant advised to stop taking it. Sure enough my heart soon went back into AF. I eventually had an ablation procedure in June 2022 and have since been back in normal rhythm for over 3 months checking daily. Still on Apixaban and Bisoprolol and would really like to stop taking them but my follow up ‘telephone’ consultation isn’t until April 2023. I’m currently swimming 3 times a week but still feel somewhat lethargic/tired which I believe is down to the beta-blockers slowing down my ‘now normal’ heart-rate unnecessarily. What to do? Maybe leave it a few more weeks then contact the nurses at my cardiology unit for advice?
