"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


Help A-Fib.com Become a Self-Supporting Site, but Still Ad-Free

Help A-Fib.com Become a Self-Supporting Site, but Still Ad-Free

A-Fib, Inc. (A-Fib.com) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the A-Fib patient’s independent source of unbiased information about Atrial Fibrillation and its resources and treatments.

Since its founding, A-Fib.com has been personally funded by Patti and Steve Ryan with an occasional reader donation (donations are applied toward the maintenance of A-Fib.com).

Our A-Fib.com goal is to be self-sustaining and remain free of third-party ads (i.e., Google Adwords, etc).

No Third-Party Advertising

To maintain our independence and unbiased viewpoint and integrity we have a “no advertising” policy. We accept no third-party advertising, do not charge for inclusion in our Directory of Doctors & facilities and accept no fee (cash or other kind) for a listing in Steve’s Lists.

How Do We Generate Ad-Free Revenues?

Our goal is to make A-Fib.com a self-sustaining site but maintain our “no advertising” policy, i.e. without third-party advertising. So, how do we generate ad-free revenues? Through small commissions when you use our portal link to shop at Amazon.com and when you buy ‘A-Fib can be Cured! T-shirts and more at Spreadshirt.com.

“Hi Steve and Patti, I just spent $200+ on Amazon and used the A-Fib.com portal link [to generate commissions for the website]. I also am interested in keeping A-Fib.com website independent and ad free. I bookmarked the link and will continue to use it for every Amazon purchase.” Barbara Cogburn, Renton, Washington

Our newest effort is our ‘A-Fib can be Cured! T-Shirt Shop with T-shirts, totes and more at Spreadshirt.com. With each shirt purchase, $2 goes toward the maintenance costs of A-Fib.com.

Disclosure: Medtronic Education Grant 2014: In October 2014, A-Fib.com received a “no strings attached” charitable grant from Medtronic to create a database from Medicare data, organized by US state, of EPs with their yearly volume of PVIs. We will publish this database on A-Fib.com as a free service to our readers.

Medtronic Educational Grant 2011: In late 2011, A-Fib.com applied for and received a $10K educational grant from Medtronic. This ‘no strings attached’ charitable contribution was used to upgrade the technical foundation of our aging website and expand the content offerings to A-Fib patients and their families. After many, many months of work, the ‘new’ A-Fib.com website went ‘live’ in December 2012.
