Case: A 53-year-old woman with no past medical history presents to the emergency department with palpitations for four days. She says she has felt fatigued and a bit short of breath.

    Hello – I’m an otherwise healthy 55 year old female, diagnosed with afib 1.5 years ago. that diagnosed it immediately prescribed warfarin and metoprolol. was away at the time, and when she returned 3 months later, she said “I probably would have only put you on aspirin” – because I am otherwise healthy. No other risk of stroke, my bp is fine, blood sugar is fine, no history of heart attack, etc. But she decided to run the tests and try to determine my afib trigger, so I have since had an echo to check my heart’s mechanical health (its good), sleep apnea test (I have mild, and am now on a device that treats it), and I’ve quite drinking alcohol. please read the following link: Arrhythmia/Treatment-Guidelines-of-Atrial-Fibrillation-AFib-or-AF_UCM_423779_the need for anticoagulation depends of your CHA2DS2–VASc risk.. I saw an internist that decided I had alcohol induced afib. after reading you will be entirely informed ,and you are able to discuss your treatment better with the doctors. However, I suspect that my afib may also be triggered by hormone fluctuations caused by the peri-menopause I’m going through, but every dr. to review my sleep apnea results, and maybe since it’s under control, I will be able to get off the warfarin. Has anyone every been on warfarin and a beta blocker, and then been able to get off both of them? Special thanks @yoanne for the reference to the Heart Association’s guidelines on A-fib diagnosis and treatment and the Internet link to bring them up to read. I’ve suggested it to says probably not, hard to prove. On that page is another link that takes us to an online tool for calculating your risk of a stroke from A-fib and the need for anticoagulation therapy. As @yoanne advises, print those two pages and take them with you to discuss them with your cardiologist(s). Ever since I was put on the 2 meds, I have been asking to get off them. wanted me to go through all the tests, and then decide. only works half time, so I am constantly seeing a new dr. I had basically said I have no choice but to stay on the drugs. The tool recommends that I take a “blood thinner,” although my risk of a stroke is based only on my age (over 65) and my hypertension. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common heart rhythm disorder caused by degeneration of the electrical impulses in the upper cardiac chambers (atria) resulting in a change from an organized heart rhythm to a rapid, chaotic rhythm. The resulting arrhythmia is often rapid and irregular with no discernible pattern (known as irregularly irregular). The disrupted rhythm occurs because of the unpredictable conduction of disordered impulses across the electrical bridge, called the atrioventricular (AV) node, to the lower cardiac chambers (ventricles). The arrhythmia also results in ineffectual atrial contractions affecting cardiac output and vulnerability to blood clot (thrombus) formation that can result in stroke events. According to the 2014 American Heart Association (AHA)/American College of Cardiology (ACC)/Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) clinical practice guidelines, AF can be classified based on the duration of episodes. Paroxysmal AF refers to AF that begins suddenly and ends spontaneously within 7 days of onset. Persistent AF refers AF that occurs for longer than 7 days and ends spontaneously or with treatment.
