For those who suffer from an irregular heartbeat known as atrial fibrillation, getting in rhythm and staying in rhythm can be an elusive goal. Thus, StopAfib.org hosted the first Get in Rhythm, Stay in Rhythm Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference in Dallas on November 2, 2013. At the conference, leading medical experts helped patients, their families, and caregivers learn more about this condition that affects millions of people worldwide.
Knowing how important this information would be to those living with atrial fibrillation, we committed to do a two-camera video shoot of the entire conference. The first of those videos are now available.

As part of the second annual “I Am CardioSmart” contest, the American College of Cardiology is encouraging patients who are living well with heart disease to share their stories to inspire others to take charge of their heart health.
Patients living with high blood pressure, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, a congenital heart defect, coronary artery disease or a previous heart attack are eligible to enter the contest and one lucky winner will receive a trip for two to Washington, DC, during the National Cherry Blossom Festival.

Atrial fibrillation is the most common irregular heart rhythm that starts in the atria. While it is often a mere annoyance, it can also be responsible for life-threatening medical emergencies that result in cardiac arrest, stroke and sudden death.
Take advantage of the opportunity to get your atrial fibrillation questions answered by afib experts from the Cleveland Clinic and the founder of StopAfib.org on a live chat December 17, 2013.
Note: Please do not post your questions for the Cleveland Clinic doctors here. After you register for the call, they will send word when you can post your questions.
