The updated app is a dynamic, interactive resource designed to help health care providers better educate and explain the complexities of AFib to their patients. The app visually demonstrates the importance of the management strategies defined in the AHA/ACC/HRS AFib clinical treatment guidelines: rate control, rhythm control, and stroke prevention.

    I'm an anesthesiologist who likes to educate my patients. I can't express strongly enough the gratitude of patients and families who FINALLY actually understand what "Afib" really is. This app is excellent. I'm do glad to have it. Re: previous review with pt who was an engineer. I had similar experience w/retired engineer who was non/compliant. After I showed him, his wife, and his daughter the app, he was convinced, too. He had an ipod Touch, too, and requested I send him the app link, so now he has the app, too! Great service and kudos to developer!

  • Good enough to convince a retired engineer...

    I downloaded this app not knowing where I would find it useful; just today however, my patient asked about my iPod touch, and I took the opportunity to show him several apps, finishing with this afib demonstration. He was silently enthralled. This man, so I heard, had fired two cardiologists and threatened legal action against a major medical center because these foolish people had tried to treat him (appropriately) for a. fib. He played the app over and over. Then he asked what he needed to do to treat his condition. THANK YOU. He really is a great guy, though a retired engineer, and stubborn, but I repeat myself.

  • Excellent app
