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.”

"...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,

"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 Summary Reports Written for Atrial Fibrillation Patients

by Steve S. Ryan, PhD

From the NYC Marriott Marquis hotel and Times Square (the musical “Hamilton” was playing next door), the 27th Annual International AF Symposium was held from Thursday January 13 through Saturday January 15, 2022.  The AF Symposium brings together the world’s leading medical scientists, clinicians, and researchers who share recent developments in the A-Fib field.

This is the 18th AF Symposium I have attended. It provides a unique learning experience about Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) not matched by any other conference. Attending the AF Symposium and adequately reporting on it is both a challenge and a privilege. 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 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. Look for my reports in the weeks and months following the Symposium.

From Dr. Jeremy Ruskin of Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School:

“Steve Ryan’s summaries of the 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.”
