Doctors & patients are saying about 'Beat Your A-Fib'...

"If I had [your book] 10 years ago, it would have saved me 8 years of hell.”

Roy Salmon, Patient, A-Fib Free,
Adelaide, Australia

"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

"...masterful. You managed to combine an encyclopedic compilation of information with the simplicity of presentation that enhances the delivery of the information to the reader. This is not an easy thing to do, but you have been very, very successful at it."

Ira David Levin, heart patient, 
Rome, Italy

"Within the pages of Beat Your A-Fib, Dr. Steve Ryan, PhD, provides a comprehensive guide for persons seeking to find a cure for their Atrial Fibrillation."

My First 2016 AF Reports: Start with 6 Live Catheter Ablations—Watching the Experts Around the World

2016 AF Symposium 5-floor-to-ceiling display screens at the Hyatt Regency Orlando

LIVE VIDEO at the 2016 AF Symposium; 5-floor-to-ceiling display screens

My first three reports from the 2016 AF Symposium are ready and posted at 2016 AF Symposium: My Summary Reports Written for A-Fib Patients.

Watching LIVE Catheter Ablations

The first report is about watching LIVE catheter ablations (transmitted via the internet)—one of the most interesting and exciting features of the Symposium. Our panel of world-class electrophysiologists (EPs) were able to interact LIVE with the EPs lab doctors doing the ablations and ask questions.

The six ablations were streamed live from:

• Seoul, South Korea
• Munich, Germany
• Bordeaux, France
• Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
• Austin, Texas
• Boston, Massachusetts

On five floor-to-ceiling display screens (and additional floor monitors), I got to see the ECGI/ECVUE mapping system in action, learned about an epicardial ablation (outside the heart) to isolate an A-Fib signal from Bachman’s Bundle, and heard about an “Empirical” ablation (ablating areas known to produce A-Fib signals even though the patient is no longer in A-Fib).

Each of my summaries includes a brief patient description, treatment challenges, etc. and highlights of the procedure. I then include my personal ‘What was Most Impressive’ comments about each presentation.

Read my report at: 2016 AF Symposium: Six Live Catheter Ablations—Watching the Experts.

And don’t miss by other reports at 2016 AF Symposium: My Summary Reports Written for A-Fib Patients.
