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

First Impressions: The 24th Annual International AF Symposium 2019

There was snow on the streets of Boston, Mass. when I arrived for the 2019 AF Symposium (an all too familiar site for a boy from Buffalo, NY). But the weather warmed up somewhat during the three-day event from January 24-26, 2019.

The most prominent topic at this year’s Symposium was the CABANA trial which had its own Thursday afternoon (January 24) session including a debate on its merits. Look for my report soon. (For background, see my January 2019 post: 5-Year CABANA Trial: Compares Catheter Ablation with Antiarrhythmic Drug Therapy)

Plethora of Future Technology

I have never seen so many future technology presentations at the AF Symposium including topics such as Quantum Mechanics, Artificial Intelligence, Technology and Ethics, Robotic Interaction, and Device Investment applied to the A-Fib field.

A-Fib Experts Presentations, Discussions and Audience Interaction

Within the 3-day Symposium, there were 65 different short presentations, followed by time for discussion and audience interaction. Each topic session was moderated by 2 or 3 leaders in the A-Fib field. The five live cases session Friday morning was again worth the price of admission by itself.

Expect My Reports

It’s a privilege to be able to attend presentations by the best clinicians and researchers working in A-Fib today. I learn more in three days than in a year of reading the various A-Fib research reports.

In the next weeks and months, I will share the current state of the art in A-Fib research and treatments and what’s relevant from a patient’s point-of-view. And all written in plain language for A-Fib patients and their families.
