"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

BodiMetrics Performance Monitor

Are You Using the AliveCor Kardia or BodiMetrics Heart Monitors?

Are you using the latest AliveCor ‘Kardia™ Mobile’ heart monitor? The current model (Model 1141) has been out since February. I want to update our February 2015 review.AliveCor ECG smartphone at A-Fib.com

The AliveCor Kardia attaches to an android or Apple device. And by pressing the sensors with your fingers (or thumbs), it capture single-lead, medical-grade EKGs in just 30-seconds. Instantly it shows if your heart rhythm is normal or if atrial fibrillation is detected.

How is the AliveCor Kardia Working for You?

If you are using the AliveCor Kardia, how do you typically use it? Regularly? Or only when you think you’re in A-Fib?

Do you take readings just for your own peace of mind or do you transfer the data to your doctor? Are you satisfied with its performance? Do you recommend the Alivecor Kardia or other brand monitor to others with A-Fib?

Share Your Insights

Do you have first-hand experience? I’m asking any A-Fib.com readers using the latest AliveCor Kardia model to share your product experiences with me. Just send me an Email with your impressions.



Other Heart Monitors:  I’m also interested if you are using another brand of handheld heart monitor, such as the BodiMetrics Performance Monitor.

While the BodiMetrics unit is much more than just a heart monitor, I’d love to hear if you are using it to help monitor your A-Fib. Send me an email, won’t you?
