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."

Walter Kerwin, MD, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA


AF Symposium 2021

My Summary Reports Written for Atrial Fibrillation PatientsAF Symposium 2021

by Steve S. Ryan, PhD

Because of the COVID-19 virus, this year’s AF Symposium was held virtually January 29-31, 2021. I certainly missed being able to ask questions of the presenters and converse briefly one-on-one with them.

I consider it a privilege to attend presentations by the most eminent medical researchers, scientists, cardiologists and cardiac electrophysiologists working in A-Fib today. I learn more in three days than in a year of reading the various A-Fib research reports.

As always, I do this to offer A-Fib.com readers the most up-to-date research and developments that may impact their treatment choices. All my reports are written in plain language for A-Fib patients and their families.
