Dear Support Network:
I am a Registered Nurse in NYS and also a PhD student with a special interest in the Atrial Fibrillation Population. I have worked in cardiology/electrophysiology for 14 years in roles as bedside, procedural area-Electrophysiology, quality and research. I am moving toward my dissertation and was wondering if you allow opportunities for advertising on your site for enrollment into research studies being conducted by PhD Student from Molloy College (Rockville Centre, Long Island New York).
Kindly advise as this opportunity would be available.
Thank you for your time.
Patricia Nadraus MS, RN, CCRN
Hi, I’m a 63-year-old female who has my first episode of afib last week 2 weeks after parathyroid surgery and subsequently became hyperthyroid, but formerly hypothyroid. We are assuming it was due to this. I was in afib for 32 hours and converted spontaneously after getting up to 200 mg of Metoprolol. After my thyroid gets balanced out is my risk low to get it again. Cardiologist said my risk factor for stroke is low as I have no diabetes, heart disease, basically just that I am female although I’m a bit overweight
thanks for any insight
Hi Ebdeb -- I was a very healthy and very active 81 when I had my first AFib and it scared me half to death. (The Navy hospital sent me to a civilian hospital in an ambulance -- and that was very scary in itself.) Was in hospital three times in one year. The first and second times, two EPs said it was stress. But during the second hospitalization, a hospitalist did extra bloodwork and said he believed it was too much thryroid medication (had previously had thyroidectomy years before). Slowly lowered my thyroid medication in increments from 150 to 75 now and I have had no more AFib incidents since the third hospitalization. It's been over three years now and I am so glad that the hospitalist noticed that -- the EPs apparently did not. No problems before nor since, thankfully. (I read that if AFib is caused by thyroid problems, then fix that and AFib is also fixed. Hopefully, that's right.) Good luck to you!
At the risk of incurring the wrath of those more technical than me, could someone please assist me! I signed up to watch the Get in Rhythm 2018 conference videos, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do so. I tried signing in, it tells me I'm already registered, then it won't recognize my password. I'd love to fill out the survey I was just sent, but I haven't watched the videos yet.
Thanking you in advance... Dick
Someone from our StopAfib.org team will reach out to you when they get in the office this morning.
Please email me at email@example.com and I can help you view the video replays from the conference.
Where can I find information on fatigue related to stroke. I am having a tough time with it. I also have a boss and workmates who think I am just playing this and are losing patience with me. I need something to show them this is real.
New Afib end of October 2018. Two more episodes since. Now on Sotalol and Eliquis. Only 57. Feel freaked out and a bit worried. Been a n RN for 35 years... never thought it would happen to me. Fatigued with Metoprolol but a little more on Sotalol.
I’m a caregiver of my 70 yo husband who had a avfistula in April . Dealing with his memory loss and moods is tough . Would like to talk to some one who may have some experience with this
