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...."

"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"

As someone with A-Fib, you may want to carry certain medical information about your condition with you at all times. But what information should you include?

In his book, The Patient’s Guide to Heart Rhythm Problems, Dr. Todd Cohen recommends carrying a “portable medical information kit”.  Here’s the information he recommends you carry with you:

1. Full name and date of birth
2. Medical conditions
3. Implantable devices and materials
4. Allergies
5. Medications (and dosages)
6. A copy of a recent ECG
7. Contact information (family, your doctor, and your Health Care Proxy agent)

Type up the information (or use a free wallet card ID generator app such as the one at MedicTag.org). Size and print to fit in your wallet.

Add a copy of your most recent ECG, then fold to fit your wallet or purse.

To make it easier for emergency personnel to find your medical information, add a label, “In Case of Emergency” (ICE).

For a more extensive discussion of what information to include and an array of options for carrying your information with you, see our article: Your Portable Medical Information Kit.
