Living with Atrial Fibrillation

The following videos have been created by Dr. Paul Dorian. They are a series of videos with key information for patients living with atrial fibrillation. They are designed to help you understand this condition and support you in living a normal life. These videos describe:

  • what happens to the heartbeat during atrial fibrillation
  • the types of treatments that are available, including medications and in-hospital procedures.
  • the need to assess and minimize your risk of stroke

Please watch these videos in order. The content builds on the knowledge from the previous video.

We hope that this program is helpful to you in understanding and living with atrial fibrillation.
