Atrial fibrillation: 2 key managment issues explained
 
03:28
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.

How to Assess and Manage Stroke Risk in Atrial Fibrillation
 
16:29
In this video first seen on Medscape Cardiology, Mayo Clinic electrophysiologist Paul Friedman, M.D., and neurologist James Klaas, M.D., discuss how to manage stroke risk in atrial fibrillation. For more information on atrial fibrillation or to request an appointment, visit https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/atrial-fibrillation/symptoms-causes/syc-20350624?mc_id=global&utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=sm&utm_content=dysrhythmiaheart&utm_campaign=mayoclinic&geo=global&placementsite=enterprise&cauid=103944. Risk scoring systems are used to determine which patients have a high enough stroke risk to warrant treatment. The most commonly used scoring system for atrial fibrillation stroke risk is the CHA2DS2VASc score. Approximately 20% of stokes come from the heart, however, there are other etiologies including carotid arteries, vertebral arteries, arterial dissections, and atherosclerosis. Outline: • Introduction • Assessing stroke risk in atrial fibrillation (0:26) • The CHADS-VASc score of 1 dilemma (2:09) • Other risk factors for stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (6:22) • When not to anticoagulate (8:12) • Cerebral amyloid angiopathy risk in atrial fibrillation (9:48) • Nonmedical means of preventing stroke (13:12) • Conclusion (16:15)

Atrial Fibrillation Patients Are at Increased Risk of Dementia, Regardless of Anticoagulation Use
 
01:12
Atrial fibrillation patients who use the drug, warfarin, to prevent harmful blood clots from forming in their hearts to lower risk of stroke are at higher risk of developing dementia than patients who use warfarin for non-atrial fibrillation conditions. Researcher and electrophysiologist Jared Bunch, MD, with the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute, explains the study, which was presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in New Orleans.

The two types of Afib
 
11:02
Type 1 and type 2 AF Most medical conditions in the western world are caused by one or more of the following conditions: Age Genetics Luck and Lifestyle. Lets look at diabetes. There is type 1 diabetes which is usually caused by bad genetics or just bad luck and affects young patients and there is type 2 diabetes which affects older patient and is usually caused by age and lifestyle. They are managed differently. Type 1 diabetes is treated with Insulin Type 2 diabetes is treated with tablets/diet and sometimes insulin (and lifestyle changes) In the same way, i believe that there are 2 types of Afib and they are caused by different things but unfortunately they are thought of as one condition and therefore all Afib is managed in the same way but ideally they should be managed differently and if you understand the difference, it may allow you to target those treatments which will give you most benefit. Type 1 Afib. Whilst most patients with Afib is seen in older patients with comorbidities, we do see it in younger patients who have no comorbidites…this has historically been termed lone Afib. In these patients, the reason of Afib is usually genetic or bad luck when you scan these patients they have normal sized left atria and often their Afib comes and goes and interestingly they seem to really not tolerate their Afib very well at all. When you follow them up, they have an exceptionally good prognosis with no increase in stroke risk and these patients seem to respond extremely well to ablation. Type 2 Afib, Older patients with Afib usually tend to develop it because of increased age and bad lifestyle. They often have comorbidites such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnoea and vascular disease. Interestingly when you scan their hearts they have big sized left atria and they seem to tolerate their Afib very well. Often many are found to be in Afib incidentally and they are often in persistent Afib. When you follow them up, they do very badly in the short to medium term and have a much higher incidence of strokes, heart failure and even sudden death and therefore need anticoagulation. Often they don’t respond as well to ablation and even if they do they often end up requiring more than one procedure and taking away the Afib does not alter their risk of strokes or overall prognosis. and therefore I think that patients with type 1 Afib should be treated with reassurance and ablation and patients with type 2 A fib do better with anticoagulation and lifestyle modification and ablation in the case of refractory symptoms

New Procedure Treats Atrial Fibrillation Without Blood Thinners
 
03:20
Many Americans take blood thinners to help manage atrial fibrillation. AFib, the most common sustained heart arrhythmia, affecting nearly three million people in the United States, can lead to severe complications like strokes if untreated. Ed Cleary came to Massachusetts General Hospital in June 2012 to get his AFib treated. He had tried taking a blood thinner to help manage his AFib, but bled too much. Fortunately, he qualified for a new procedure now being used for the first time in New England by Mass General Hospital. The Lariat® procedure is for patients who cannot be on blood thinners. The procedure, which is minimally-invasive and uses catheters, ties off the left atrial appendage by use of sutures (blood clots often appear in the LAA and can cause strokes). In this video, Moussa Mansour, MD, director of the Mass General Atrial Fibrillation Program in the Institute for Heart, Vascular and Stroke Care, talks about what the procedure does, gives a general overview of the problem for some patients with the left atrial appendage and shares Mr. Cleary's prognosis.

Developing anticoagulation management and therapy for atrial fibrillation through primary care
 
02:18
Atrial fibrillation is the commonest heart rhythm abnormality, substantially raising risk of stroke and death and affecting around 8.8 million people in the EU, with up to 2% of the UK population taking oral anticoagulation medication. Birmingham research has supported a move from lab blood tests and secondary care to primary care and more recently patient self-management through development of new testing and management approaches, which have helped improve clinical outcomes. Clinical trials led in Birmingham have also proven the safety of anticoagulation therapy in elderly patients, and led to the establishment of the National Centre for Anticoagulation Training within the University, which provides accredited training for health care professionals involved in the management of patients.

Meds First Line Treatment for AFib
 
01:52
Cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer in this country, and one of the most commonly seen cardio conditions is AFib. An irregular heartbeat, it leads to a higher risk of stroke. “The risks are completely different depending upon a variety of issues including the history of prior stroke, heart failure, high blood pressure, diabetes, vascular disease, age, and gender,” says Lee Memorial Health System cardiologist Dr. Richard Chazal. With the help of a risk calculator, doctors assess each patient. Much research and development is being aimed towards AFib, but the simple truth is, that one of the most basic, time-tested treatments remains the best first line approach. “In 2014, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association released guidelines on treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation. In most cases, patients with minimal symptoms are recommended to be treated with control of the heart rate and also anticoagulant blood thinners to reduce the likelihood of having a stroke,” says Dr. Chazal. At the same time advances are being made in surgical treatments for AFib, R&D is put to use in developing new drugs. These medications are easier to take than in years past. The hope is more people who need them will find drug therapy easier to swallow. “Their advantage is a reduction in the likelihood of interaction with other medications, a reduction in the likelihood of interaction with certain foods or beverages that could be problematic with warfarin or Coumadin, and importantly, the lack of need for regular blood test to monitor the control of the anticoagulant,” says Dr. Chazal. A risky condition, your doctors can recommend the right line of treatment for AFib that will reduce the stress on your health.

Your help in creating great, relevant content is greatly appreciated. Although it was thought for many years that aspirin was sufficient to 'thin' your blood to prevent blood clots inside the heart from forming, the latest evidence is that aspirin is just not effective enough in people who have atrial fibrillation associated with other risk factors, including being elderly! This video describes the role of aspirin in managing patients with atrial fibrillation. Transcript: Thank you for visiting Doctor AFib, I'm Dr. Morales. In today's video segment we're going to be talking about the role of aspirin when it comes to managing atrial fibrillation. In a previous video segment, I discussed your risk of stroke with atrial fibrillation as defined by the CHADSVASc risk score. Most people who have atrial fibrillation are going to have a CHADSVASc score of two or greater and it's going to be recommended to take stronger blood thinners, something called anticoagulation. However, when I explain it to the patients, probably the next question is: what about an aspirin? Can I take an aspirin for atrial fibrillation? So, let's look at the data regarding aspirin for atrial fibrillation. Aspirin has been studied for atrial fibrillation since the late 80s and early 90s and in multiple clinical trials. Back in 2007, there was a meta-analysis which combined the results of several studies and showed that aspirin provides a reduction in the rate of stroke by about 22%. Most studies in the 80s and 90s used aspirin 325 milligrams daily. A later study called the Active W trial looked at the combination of aspirin together with Plavix and that reduced your risk of stroke by about 44%. However, in that same meta-analysis in 2007, it showed that Warfarin, also called Coumadin, reduced risk of stroke in atrial fibrillation by about 66%. Several studies were done back in the late 80s or 90s early 2000s looking at comparing aspirin with Warfarin and every time Warfarin was found to be superior to aspirin for reducing your risk of stroke. As a result, for many years Warfarin became the standard of care for reducing the risk of stroke because it was far better in terms of the reduction amount for reducing the risk of stroke. Fortunately, these days there are other options, where newer blood thinners have come out as an alternative to Warfarin. Listen to the video for more Read my blog posts at http://www.DrAFib.com
