ABOUT 'BEAT YOUR A-FIB'...


"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"

The 2016 International AF Symposium: Research You Can Use

Sunday I returned home from four days in Orlando, FL, and the 21st Annual AF Symposium.

Why I Attend the International AF Symposium

The AF Symposium brings together the world’s leading cardiologists, medical researchers and scientists who share the most recent advances in the field. It is one of the most important medical conferences on Atrial Fibrillation in the world.

Each year I attend to listen, learn and ‘absorb’ the presentations and research findings. (I take loads of notes.) The conference gives me a thorough and practical view of the state of the art in the treatment of Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib).

After each presentation, I ask myself: “What does this mean to A-Fib patients?” “How might this impact the treatment decision patients are making now and in the future?” “What will my A-Fib.com readers what to know about?”

What This Means to You

My aim is to pare down the significant research findings to the essentials and ‘translate’ them into plain language (as much as possible) for A-Fib patients and their families. I then add my own comments and insights.

“Steve Ryan’s summaries of the 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, Mass. General Hospital & Harvard Medical School

On the plane ride home, I start a summary of the conference and an overview of the most popular topics or issues.

In the months following the Symposium, I write and post three or four reports each month usually ending up with about 20–30 articles. (Why does it take so long? I send each summary to the presenter inviting their feedback; so it takes some time to get each article written, reviewed, and then posted.)

My Reports are Coming Soon

My reports are written just for A-Fib patients and their families. You won’t find this information in this format anywhere else. (BTW: physicians, cardiologists and electrophysiologists read my reports, too.)

I will post my Symposium Overview soon followed by my first eight reports.
