If you’ve read any of my posts on this blog, you know I’ve mentioned this monitor many times over the past couple years. I’m a huge fan of this device and in my opinion it’s a “must have” for all afibbers!
This was a great year for me as far as my heart and overall health goes. Sure I continued to battle PVCs and PACs on and off throughout the year but I didn’t have any afib and I didn’t have a single health issue of concern.
Are you like me, do you enjoy having a cocktail or beer occasionally? Do we have to give up alcohol if we have atrial fibrillation? Find out the answer in this Q&A session!
In this post I show ECG examples of the most common heart arrhythmias we afibbers seem to encounter. Atrial fibrillation is the obvious one but the others include atrial flutter, SVT, PVCs, and PACs.
I always tell people who are newly diagnosed with a-fib that the first thing they need to do is empower themselves by getting educated on ALL aspects of atrial fibrillation – and that includes familiarizing yourself with ECGs. This article provides a simple primer on ECGs.
