Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) is the name for the most common type of irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). If you are living with AFib, it means that your heart beats in a disorganised way. This chaotic activity leads to an irregular, and usually fast, pulse rate, which may cause palpitations and increase the risk of having stroke, heart failure or other heart-related complications.
The interactive panel discussion will address your priorities and concerns for living with AFib. Experts on the night include: Paul Nolan, Chief II Cardiac Physiologist at Galway University Hospital; Dr. Jonathan Lyne, Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at Blackrock Clinic; and Eileen Joyce, Psychotherapist, who was diagnosed with AFib last year and will share her experience from a patient’s perspective.
“Atrial fibrillation is not immediately life-threatening in the same way as some irregular heartbeats are. Most people are able to live full and active lives with AFib. You can do this by taking your prescribed medication, following the medical advice you received from your doctor, having regular medical check-ups and making positive lifestyle changes,” says Dr Lisa Hynes, Croí’s Head of Health Programmes.
