  1. Thanks very informative and full of knowledge .

  2. I came here looking to see if anyone else suffers from the alcohol
    connection? I’m a recovering alcoholic and one thing that helps keep me
    dry is fear of AF. I always had it when coming OFF alcohol. Anyone else get
    that?

  3. Cant hear the audience questions at the end. Wish he would repeat them for
    us

  4. It amazes me that these quacks do not know about the medical research that
    indicates the gut relationship to afib and these quacks like most quacks
    are symptom relievers. Eliminating symptoms is not curing and the fact
    there is a cure is not being addressed due to monetary ambitions of these
    quacks. They do not know or they are hiding the facts, either way they are
    criminals or incompetent. I cured my full time all day every day afib by
    myself without procedures or drugs and these quacks want no one to know.

  5. I am watching a video of Dr. Marcus speaking about Atrial Fibrillation :
    The Most Common Heart Arrhythmia from the UCSF television network.

  6. This was excellent primer on Afib. I have a condition called WPW syndrome
    which causes the heart to go into rapid heartbeat for no apparent reason.
    I have had this condition my entire life – it is hereditary condition and
    my grandfather had it. I just had cardiac ablation. In my case, the
    procedure was very smooth process. It took about 4 hours – I was not under
    general anesthesia – in fact I was more or less awake for the last hour and
    was talking with the anesthesiologist. The worst part was laying on my
    back for so long as they made me stay in bed for 4 hours after the
    procedure. I was tired the next day – but 3 days out now I feel perfectly
    fine. I guess the only way I will know if they cured it is if the rapid
    heart beat never returns. They can see that the WPW is gone on the ECG.
    If I am any indication – I think Ablation is the way to go.

  7. It’s 2014, 4 years since this lecture. Nothing has changed. There are no
    answers. All is speculation. I am watching an under 50 year-old woman who
    has always been vibrantly alive, crumble, following a lone afib with no
    risk factors save for being female, who received electro cardioversion
    without anesthesia – with no anticoagulants given for 10 days following the
    conversion, all of which is treated “as nothing.” A 1988 NYTimes article
    by Peter R. Kowey, M.D., clearly states that the psychological harm is
    often significant. But, as her physicians have told her – it was
    “nothing.” It is “common.” “There is nothing to do.” It isn’t nothing,
    and not addressing cause and concerns could well result in greater and
    sustained debility. So, just what is the recourse, eh?

  8. i HAVE HAD 3 ABLATIONS THEY ARE THINKING ABOUT ANOTHER. I AM CONFUSED WHAT
    I SHOUND DO.IAM 71 YRS OLD.

  9. My 84 years old husband has AFib, has had a pacemaker inserted and very
    soon will be having AV Node Ablation. His heart is only working at 31%
    because of disease, age.
    His main problem is his breathing, as soon as he walks or does anything he
    starts puffing.
    No-one will give us a definiate yes or no, that doing the Ablation is
    going to stop this puffing. Anyone, had the same problem? Has it helped?
    I try to keep his thinking positively, but when you cant get the right or
    any answer it is very frustrating.

  10. What is the difference between the rheumatic and non rheumatic A.fib.
    Please ?

  11. Stunned left Atrial appendage , indeed it is magic treatment personally
    speaking . And the rate control how is the rate must be kept and how we
    follow particularly rhythmically 24 changes

  12. I am an “AFib” patient. It was a long and frustrating journey until I was
    diagnoised as being “AFib” with no questions asked. I went over 3 years
    with my condition being called “panic attacks”. I even made it into the
    hospital ER and had EKG tapes documentating my condition, the hospital
    claimed they lost these tapes. One time that I went “afib” the fire
    department responded and ran an eKG on me. By the time I reached the
    hospital I was back in sinus rythym. It was good I had these EKG tapes from
    the fire department as this was the only reason that I was given an afib
    diagnosis. I am now taking Flecainide 50 mg twice a day. Be prepared for
    your claim of afib to be dismissed for many years.

  13. Thank you answering the question of the HR , what about the pregnancy and
    A. Fib . And the Warfarine , some said low dose what about the INR with
    pregnancy please ?

  14. NIH and the US HD are supported me more than I thought , therefore , I’d
    like to thank you all indeed for ever for your unique humanity and
    appreciation

  15. Very informative. Thank you. Waiting for my ablation date which will be
    some time early in the new year. Forewarned is forearmed!

  16. Thank you so much indeed .
