Atrial fibrillation: 2 key managment issues explained
In this video we try to explain two of the key issues for the management of atrial fibrillation. 1.The first issue is the issue of heart rate control versus heart rhythm control. Will your physician try to just control your heart rate or try to flip your rhythm back in to sinus rhythm from atrial fibrillation? With heart rate control our goal is to try to control the heart rate only. Thus the patient could still be in atrial fibrillation however heart rate is brought under control (60-110 bpm) with medications like beta blockers- metoprolol and calcium channel blockers like diltiazem etc. By rhythm control the physician tries to reset the heart into into sinus rhythm from atrial fibrillation. This can be done with the help of medications and is called as chemical cardioversion. Or it can be done by electrical shock also known as electrical cardioversion. Medications that can be used to keep the patient in the rhythm. These medications include, flecanide, sotalol or amiodarone etc. 2. The second key issue in the management of atrial fibrillation is prevention of stroke. Stroke is a deadly complication of atrial fibrillation. The first question that arises is what is the risk of stroke in a given patient with atrial fibrillation. A patients risk of stroke can be calculated by using an abbreviation called CHAD2VASC2 (explained in the table). Blood thinners (like Coumadin or newer agents like xeralto/apixaban/rivaroxaban) are recommended for patients with a score more than 2. For a score of zero usually no blood are recommended and for patients with the score of one either blood thinner or are aspirin as recommended.

Your help in creating great, relevant content is greatly appreciated. Discover everything patients should know about the blood thinner Coumadin (Warfarin). I cover the mechanism of action against vitamin K, the conditions it treats (including atrial fibrillation and deep vein thrombosis a.k.a DVT), the INR and how it should be monitored. This video describes the role of Warfarin in managing atrial fibrillation. Also included are modern day pros and cons of still using this medication that has been available for well over 50 years. Transcript: Thank you for visiting doctor AFib, I'm Dr. Morales. In today's video segment we're going to be talking about a blood thinner that has been on the market for well over 50 years, known as Warfarin or also goes by the brand name of Coumadin.Yes, it was first advertised and marketed as a rat poison way back in the 1940s. But starting in the 1950s it began to be approved for human use as a blood thinner.Nowadays it's actually used for several purposes, including for reducing the risk of stroke for atrial fibrillation, but also for treating deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism as well as an anticoagulant for mechanical heart valves. Starting in the late 1980s and into the 1990s there were several clinical trials comparing Warfarin with aspirin for reducing the risk of stroke for atrial fibrillation.Several times Warfarin was shown to be superior for reducing the risk of stroke.In meta-analysis where they combined data from several clinical trials, it showed that Warfarin reduces the risk of stroke by about 66 percent. However, there are a lot of nuances when it comes to managing somebody who has taken Warfarin. First of all, not everybody's dose is the same based on how individuals metabolize the medication. There's a blood test called an INR, which helps your doctor monitor your Warfarin level to find the right dosage for you.At the beginning, very frequently people will have the blood tested every week until you find the correct dosage for you.After that stage, it may be only checked about once a month The target level on the blood test for most people is between a level between two to three in that INR blood test. However, there's been several studies that have shown that the amount of time people are actually within that recommended range can range anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of the time which shows that at least 30% of the time or even more patients are not within the recommended range of that INR level.

Chalk Talk 22:  Atrial fibrillation-  Cardioversion versus Rate Control
Rich Gordon and Dan McCollum discuss differences between treating Atrial Fibrillation with rapid ventricular response with rate control versus cardioversion. Rich favors rhythm control a bit more than Dan who slightly prefers rate control. Rich makes some excellent points about the need to resuscitate to maintain correct rhythm and to remember the use of heparin if you plan to cardiovert.

Widely Used Heart Drug Linked To Increased Dementia Risk
Researchers have linked a widely used heart drug to increased risk of dementia. Warfarin is a blood thinner used in the treatment of atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rhythm that affects millions of people in the U.S. Researchers at the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute tracked more than 10,000 patients who took warfarin long-term, both for atrial fibrillation and for other conditions. The researchers found that patients with atrial fibrillation experienced higher rates of dementia and Alzheimer's. Within eight years, close to 6 percent of patients taking warfarin for atrial fibrillation developed dementia, compared to less than 2 percent of those taking warfarin for other reasons. This is the first study to detail the dementia risks of warfarin. Doctors warn the connections between blood thinners, atrial fibrillation and dementia are still not clearly understood. The study's lead author says because doctors are only now learning about the risks, "only those that absolutely need blood thinners should be placed on them long-term."

Find more information on this topic, and Dr. Singer, at: http://www.stopafib.org/newsitem.cfm/NEWSID/397 Dr. Singer led a symposium on atrial fibrillation stroke prevention at Boston Atrial Fibrillation Symposium 2012. In this video interview, Dr. Singer shared with StopAfib.org information from that symposium. He provided an update on rivaroxaban (Xarelto), which was recently approved by the FDA, and talked about the results of the two trials of apixaban (Eliquis), AVERROES and ARISTOTLE, against aspirin and warfarin, respectively. He also mentioned edoxaban, which should finish trials in 2012, and that we now have a year of results in clinical practice with dabigatran (Pradaxa). He also mentioned that the new drugs have all shown better results than warfarin (Coumadin) in preventing intracranial bleeding (bleeding in the brain). He confirmed that patients will have a lot of new choices soon, but that cost will continue to be an issue. Dr. Singer is a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Professor of Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, and Chief of the Clinical Epidemiology Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital.

2016 Atrial Fibrillation Guidelines: Putting the new guidelines into practice
Teresa Tsang, MD, FRCPC, FACC, FASE, Vancouver, BC; John Cairns, MD, FRCPC, FRCP (Lond), FCAHS, FACC;Jason Andrade, MD, FRCPC Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia managed by physicians. Most patients with AF or atrial flutter (AFL) have poor quality of life due to the symptomatology of the disease, making the management strategy a key component of symptoms improvement, reduction of hospitalizations, and prevention of further complications, such as stroke. The Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) Atrial Fibrillation Guidelines Program has generated a comprehensive series of documents regarding the management of AF between 2010 and 2016.

Heart rate control in atrial fibrillation (RATE-AF trial Birmingham)
Atrial fibrillation is a common heart condition that causes an irregular and often rapid heart rate. Control of heart rate can be achieved with different medications, but we currently lack evidence for the best treatment, making it difficult to choose the right medication for individual patients. The RATE-AF trial is designed to compare two strategies of rate-control, to see which improves quality of life and heart function. Patients with atrial fibrillation are closely involved with the design and management of the research study. Together, we hope to improve the lives of patients with atrial fibrillation and give doctors more evidence about how to treat their patients. For more information, please go to http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/rateaf. RATE-AF is sponsored by the University of Birmingham and funded through a Fellowship programme by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), a UK government body that coordinates and funds research for the National Health Service.

Eliquis: New Medication for Atrial Fibrillation
An in-depth conversation between Pentucket Medical cardiologists Seth Bilazarian and Sunny Srivastava, focusing on a newly released medicine to reduce the risks of atrial fibrillation. The latest among recently approved blood thinners, Eliquis joins Pradaxa and Xarelto as an alternative to Coumadin, a drug that has been in use since the 1950s. Like Pradaxa and Xarelto, Eliquis has been shown to reduce risk of stroke and bleeding, as well as mortality. All the new drugs eliminate the need for regular blood testing that Coumadin necessitates.

Instead of beating normally, the upper chambers quiver or fibrillate. The upper chambers no longer fill the lower chambers with blood and heart output can be reduced by 20-40%. During atrial fibrillation the upper chambers send about 600 impulses a minute down to the lower chambers. While the lower chambers do not beat 600 times a minute, they can still beat very fast and irregularly. Over time this can cause the important lower pumping chambers to fail. Possibly the worst complication of atrial fibrillation is stroke. When the upper chambers stop contracting, blood can stagnate and form a clot. This clot can break off and go anywhere in the body including the brain. 75% of strokes associated with atrial fibrillation leave a patient in a nursing home or are fatal. Atrial fibrillation that lasts more than 48 hours will put a patient at risk for stroke. The stroke risk is 5% per year for ongoing atrial fibrillation. The stroke risk becomes higher for older patients. Generally, the risk of stroke can be lowered to 1% per year or less with oral blood thinners such as coumadin, Pradaxa or Xarelto. There is an additional 1% per year risk of serious bleeding with blood thinners, but generally the benefits outweigh the possible complications for most people. Pradaxa may be slightly superior to coumadin which was the standard for many years. The use of coumadin (also called warfarin) requires frequent monitoring with lab work to make sure the blood is not too thick or too thin. Xarelto and Pradaxa do not have this monitoring requirement. Atrial fibrillation patients may be converted back to normal sinus rhythm with medications, an electrical cardioversion (shock) or they may convert spontaneously on their own. It is important that their blood be blood be therapeutically thin for 3 weeks prior to a cardioversion or that blood thinner be started and clot ruled out with a transesophageal echo. Atrial fibrillation always comes back at some point and 9 out of 10 patients cannot tell when an episode of atrial fibrillation first starts. Their presenting symptom may be shortness of breath/heart failure or even a stroke several weeks after their abnormal rhythm begins. There are ways of checking daily for atrial fibrillation, but no method is 100% accurate. After a person is converted back to normal rhythm, it is critical that they remain on blood thinners for at least one month and, in most cases, much longer. There is still a significant stroke risk after the heart converts back to normal from a clot dislodging. Individual treatment for atrial fibrillation is dependent on many factors and should be discussed with your cardiologist/electrophysiologist.

Atrial Fibrillation (AF or AFib)
Atrial fibrillation (also called AFib or AF) is a quivering or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Some people refer to AF as a quivering heart. An estimated 2.7 million Americans are living with AF.

Treatment Options For Atrial Fibrillation – Patient information
Dr. Kneller discusses discuses treatment strategies for atrial fibrillation. Considerations include rhythm control (stopping and preventing atrial fibrillation) and rate control (slowing down the rapid heart rate caused by atrial fibrillation, without attempting to restore a normal rhythm), and whether systemic anticoagulation medication (ie, Xarelto, Eliquis, Pradaxa, or warfarin) is needed. Anti-arrhythmic medications (ie, flecainide, propafenone, sotalol, tikosyn) or catheter ablation are used to restore normal rhythm.

Teacher receives Watchman to decrease Stroke Risk without Warfarin
Former Emmaus teacher Buzz Hill developed atrial fibrillation (AFib) in his late seventies. He experienced a stroke and later, also suffered a brain bleed as a result of taking the blood thinner Warfarin (Coumadin.) Many patients with AFib are at an increased risk of stroke due to blood clots which form in a pocket of the heart called the left atrial appendage (LAA). In this video, Buzz and his wife Carolyn share how they made the decision to have a device called Watchman implanted in a catheter-based procedure at Lehigh Valley Health Network. He returned home the day after the procedure, and felt well enough to return to the outdoors and enjoy one of his favorite past times, hunting.

Atrial Fibrillation : how to diagnose and record your own episode
ford brewer md mph . PrevMedHeartRisk.com I had my own episode of a fib. I thought I'd had these before. I got an iphone device called Kardia. It allows people to check their own rhythm strip. You don't have to be a doctor to read this. It gives you an indication. Also, you can send the reading off to a professional for an interpretation. I woke up at 2 am last Sunday AM. It felt like there was a fish jumping in my chest. I took several episodes of readings. It appears to be a fib. There was an irregularly irregular heart rhythm. The strip showed no p wave, indicating chaos within the atria. My ventricular response was in the range of 140 to160 beats per minute. I also had a couple of aberrant ventricular responses. I'll have to get this worked up. I have several risk factors: endurance running 4 q 25 gene ( the "atrial fib" gene) age 60 alcohol 6-8 drinks per week. I may end up on Xarelto. The New Oral Anti Coagulants ( NOACs) are demonstrating to be better than aspirin or coumadin for stroke prevention. I'll also look at the WATCHMAN and other devices. But I don't think they're ready yet. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has over 500 primary care/ prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, stroke, and diabetes prevention clinic. At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack and stroke and Type 2 diabetes prevention by reducing or eliminating risk through attentive care and state-of-the-art genetic testing, imaging, labs and telemedicine options.

Pradaxa and Xarelto: Why I don't recommend them to patients
A discussion of the controversies surrounding the RE-LY and ROCKET-AF trials, which led to the initial FDA approvals of dabigatran (Pradaxa) and rivaroxaban (Xarelto) respectively. Please note that in the 2 years since this video was posted, additional studies have been published which support the use of these drugs. I leave the video up because the issues discussed are still relevant. However, if you are a layperson, please do NOT stop taking your Xarelto or Pradaxa just because you watched this video. Instead, discuss your concerns with your physician. There are more than one alternative anticoagulants out there.

Kowal, MD, PhD, FHRS spoke about getting the most from your doctors, including: • What kind of doctor is likely to manage your care • Doctor taking primary responsibility for your AF depends on how it was discovered [1:38] • Doctor taking primary responsibility based on how you feel [2:09] • What is involved in managing afib care • Care components: stroke prevention, rate management, symptom/rhythm management [3:42] • What prompts referral [4:22] • Patient age, complex medical conditions, history of HD, high heart rate difficult to control, ongoing symptoms despite treatment • AFFIRM trial justifies minimal approach to AF [5:25] • Pieces of atrial fibrillation management [6:40] o Stroke prevention o Rate control o Rhythm management o Timing can be critical o Comorbid conditions • When do patients typically get referred to specialists, and [10:36] • What are the challenges with seeing specialists [11:49] Following Dr. Kowal, Mellanie True Hills discussed communicating with your healthcare providers and resources that can help patients. • Communicating with your doctor [13:59] • Resources – patient care [19:29] • Communications between patients and healthcare providers [20:25] In a subsequent dialogue, Dr. Kowal and Mellanie discussed the following topics: • How to know if you have the right doctor [21:40] • How much variation doctors see in AF patient symptoms [22:32] • What to do if the relationship is just not working [28:30] • What patients do that drive doctors nuts [30:30] • The difficulty of getting patient records [31:55] • How doctors and patients can use mobile health together, and [33:51] • What is the ideal “engaged patient” like [35:43] Video watching time is approximately 45 minutes. Dr. Robert Kowal graduated from Yale University and received his MD and PhD degrees from UT Southwestern Medical Center. He completed his medical internship, residency, and cardiology fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital and went on to study cardiac electrophysiology. He currently practices at Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital. While performing a broad spectrum of device implantation procedures, from pacemakers to multi-lead defibrillators, his main focus is the management of complex arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. His approaches involve both non-invasive medical therapy and catheter-based ablation procedures. He has been and is currently involved in research on many cutting-edge technologies including cryoballoon ablation and FIRM mapping for atrial fibrillation, left atrial appendage closure and the role of renal denervation in the treatment of arrhythmia. He has taken a national leadership role serving on the Board of Trustees at the Heart Rhythm Society and is on the editorial board of several scientific journals.

Make up lecture: Atrial fibrillation and Angina
5:45 Lecture Start 6:41 Atrial Fibrillation: cause 10:45 Right Atrium causes PE, Left Atrium causes Stroke 14:00 Anticoagulants, not thrombolytics: aspirin, warfarin 15:00 Treatment A Fib: anticoagulants, antiarrhythmia drugs, and heart rate lowering drugs 16:00-17:58: The A fib assignment 18:45 Angina in movies 19:36 Stable Angina: definition 20:50 Angina and MI pain differs in men and women 21:30 Dead lady in the bathroom story 22:30 Cause of angina 23:08 I attempt to draw a picture and it doesn't appear until 26:21 26.40 Drawing of angina oxygen supply and demand 28:30 Arteriosclerosis reduces ability of coronary vessels to dilate 29:50 Strategies: 1: Dilate coronary vessel 30:40: 2. Keep clots from forming 31:50 3. Reduce oxygen consumption (reduce heart rate, and reduce preload and afterload) 34:45 Unstable angina and various heart attacks (coronary syndromes) 36:00 Aspirin 39:25 Warfarin: Too little, too much, and misery of managing it 42:00 Heparin 44:00 NITRATES and nitroglycerin 44:38 Special storage of nitroglycerin and tubing 45:50 Nitrate tolerance: remove patch/paste at night 47:38 Nitrates and first pass metabolism (remember ORAL dose will be much higher than doses via other routes) 49:45 How to give nitroglycerin pills for chest pain (q 5 minutes x 3) 51:00 Nitrates dilate blood vessels, and gives patient a headache 52:15 Orthostatic hypotension 53:39 Reflex Tachycardia 54:35 Erectile Dysfunction 55:40 How viagra+nitrates kill you 56:15 Sexy Monkey 57:00 Isosorbide dinitrate 57:10 beta-blockers 58:13 Brick under the accelerator pedal 59:09 Hollywood calls. Skip to 59:26 59:26 beta-blocker makes an upper limit beyond which the heart rate cannot go 59:58 Old granny with 20 cats and vacuuming: how beta-blocker prevents patients from becoming deconditioned 1:03:00 Propranolol Black Box warning (is also black box warning for all beta-1 blockers used for angina) 1:05:56 (SIDE NOTE about alpha-1. NorEpi and Epi binding alpha-1 receptors do NOT constrict coronary vessels. That would be bad. Assume there are no alpha-1 receptors on coronary vessels 1:08:00 Calcium levels and strength of contraction 1:09:20 Calcium Channel Blocker (CCB) lowers calcium inside muscle, and so the muscle relaxes. Includes smooth muscle in arteries 1:10:22 CCB slows electrical conduction in the atrium and AV node 1:11:40 EPIC constipation 1:12:50 My gross mnemonic for remembering CCBs cause constipation 1:13:59 SIDE NOTE Drugs contraindicated in pure LVHeartFailure: CCBs, propranolol and mannitol 1:15:45 Types of CCBs 1:17:00 Fast-acting nifedipine and reflex tachycardia 1:19:00 morphine and oxygen 1:20:00 Plans for next week, homework for next week and plans for the exam Okay. This is my first time trying to stream. So it is a bit choppy and I look a bit like the robot lady in the bottom of Starcraft II. Which is cool but a little distracting. This talk will consist of a brief lecture about Atrial Fibrillation, and then I'll talk about Angina and the drugs we use to treat angina.
