Gender Matters: Why Afib Is More Fatal for Women

EP Lab Digest recently published Gender Matters: Why Afib Is More Fatal for Women, authored by StopAfib.org founder Mellanie True Hills. In it, she discussed the research into why atrial fibrillation and afib-related strokes are more deadly for women and what can be done.

Topics include:

  • Stroke and bleeding risk assessment tools, including CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc, and HAS-BLED
  • Gender-related afib treatment differences, including rate and rhythm treatment differences, anticoagulation and bleeding differences, and other treatment differences.
  • Improving communications between healthcare providers and afib patients
