Please Take This Survey to Help Researchers Study “Pill-in-Pocket” Blood Thinners Using a Smart Watch - For Patients. By Patients - Stop Atrial Fibrillation

We would appreciate your help with a survey to help Dr. Rod Passman, a researcher at Northwestern University who spoke at the Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.® Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference this past weekend. He is working on developing a study into the use of blood thinners on an “as needed” basis compared to the continuous use of blood thinners.

If funded, the study would use a smartwatch to help those with afib determine when blood thinners are needed. The survey is quick and easy to take.

Please share this with others who have afib and can help with the survey!
