"This book is incredibly complete and easy-to-understand for anybody. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors...."

Pierre Jaïs, M.D. Professor of Cardiology, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, Bordeaux, France

"Dear Steve, I saw a patient this morning with your book [in hand] and highlights throughout. She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Wilber Su Cavanaugh Heart Center, Phoenix, AZ

"Your book [Beat Your A-Fib] is the quintessential most important guide not only for the individual experiencing atrial fibrillation and his family, but also for primary physicians, and cardiologists."

Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel, nurse, blogger and author "Rational Preparedness: A Primer to Preparedness"


"Steve Ryan's summaries of the Boston A-Fib Symposium are terrific. Steve has the ability to synthesize and communicate accurately in clear and simple terms the essence of complex subjects. This is an exceptional skill and a great service to patients with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Jeremy Ruskin of Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

"I love your [A-fib.com] website, Patti and Steve! An excellent resource for anybody seeking credible science on atrial fibrillation plus compelling real-life stories from others living with A-Fib. Congratulations…"

Carolyn Thomas, blogger and heart attack survivor; MyHeartSisters.org

"Steve, your website was so helpful. Thank you! After two ablations I am now A-fib free. You are a great help to a lot of people, keep up the good work."

Terry Traver, former A-Fib patient

"If you want to do some research on AF go to A-Fib.com by Steve Ryan, this site was a big help to me, and helped me be free of AF."

Roy Salmon Patient, A-Fib Free; pacemakerclub.com, Sept. 2013

Where were you when A-Fib first struck?Readers Poll Badge160 x 150 tall at 96 res

• Being prepped for a colonoscopy

• at my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary party. It began after I had a large piece of very rich chocolate cake, and lasted for, I don’t know, at least 15 minutes.

• In my garden, in hot and humid weather

• I was not feeling well but went to the SPCA anyway to look for a new dog. Ours had died 15 months prior. When I got there and took one dog for a walk, I had fast heartbeat non-stop, throat hurt, head hurt, the whole shebang. I headed back, jumped into my car and drove to the nearest ER, luckily very close by. It took sixteen hours to bring my heart rate back to normal. Now I seem fine, lots of self-monitoring.

• In bed at home

• In bed fast asleep

• Cancun Mexico resort

• At home talking about stressful subjects…It lasted only a few minutes….I thought that was the caffeine i had all day.

• Asleep at home. It happened during the night

• At home on my couch.

• In the hospital fighting serious bacterial pneumonia which had also invaded the pericardium. I left the hospital with a-fib.

• The first time I found out that I had it was in my primary care office during a routine physical exam. No telling how long I had it before.

• home

• At home while washing the car.
