ABOUT 'BEAT YOUR A-FIB'...

"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"

About Steve S. Ryan, PhD

In 2002 Steve Ryan started Atrial Fibrillation: Resources for Patients, A-Fib.com, to spare other the frustration, depression and anxiety he went through to find his cure.

Dr. Ryan had his first A‑Fib attack in the January 1997. After numerous failed drug therapies, two unsuccessful right atria ablations, and much frustration, he educated himself about Atrial Fibrillation through an exhaustive search of medical literature and interviews with medical experts.

In April 1998 he was cured by Drs. Pierre Jaïs and Michel Haïssaguerre of the French Bordeaux group (Hôpital Cardiologique du Haut-Lévêque, France) through a relatively new procedure at the time called Focal Point Catheter Ablation (now called “pulmonary vein Isolation”).

So grateful for his cure, he pledged to help other A‑Fib patients find their cure, too. In 2002, he started Atrial Fibrillation: Resources for Patients (A‑Fib.com) a source of well-researched, unbiased information on current and emerging treatments, resources and medical research―all written in plain language for the patients and their families.

Every month tens of thousands of A-Fib patients and their families visit A-Fib.com seeking hope and guidance. Healthcare professionals around the world refer their patients to www.A-Fib.com.

Videos: We’ve edited several short videos (3-5 min.) from Steve’s most interesting radio and TV interviews: Steve Ryan videos. Also, visit our A-Fib.com Library of instructional videos and animations.

He “jumped the fence” in 1983 to work in broadcast television production at ABC-TV in Hollywood and later for many years at NBC-TV in Burbank.

For fun Steve trains for and runs sprint races, the high jump and an occasional 5K race. He is quite the film buff and has seen every notable film ever made (well almost). He took an early retirement from NBC in 2001.

He spends much of his time researching and writing for A-Fib.com and counseling other A-Fib patients. He and his wife, Patti, live in Malibu, California, USA.
