At last …. Afib and things pic.twitter.com/HNrYcJX4MK
Just had a male med student in his late 20s volunteer that he had gone into atrial fibrillation 2 weeks after he got his second Pfizer shot. 20+ year old men don’t just go into afib. His cardiologist told him it was the antidepressant he was taking. 1/
I keep thinking how awhile back the hospital tried to say mom's heart issues were "anxiety" until they did that EKG and found the A-Fib with RVR. The automatic assumption that a woman's symptoms = anxiety. It kills people. What if they had caught this sooner?
If the patient has free light chains in the serum..... Yea heart failure, left ventricle.... atrial fibrillation... https://twitter.com/LaJuliaBarish/status/1442209773122834433 …
Had a back to back code in my pod, then a peds seizure, then a STEMI, then AFib with RVR who was de compensating, then a trauma, then a conscious sedation that lasted 70 min and I’m just laying here thinking of the things I forgot to chart pic.twitter.com/4zcISpkq3H

Just checked MyChart and mom's pulse was bursting into 200 at rest last night. She has A-Fib with RVR, which is one of the most dangerous arrhythmias. It's caused by her pulmonary fibrosis. I am so scared for her. https://gofund.me/e1f6586a

Apixaban sucks and is overrated. Aspirin is a great option for Afib stroke risk reduction! https://twitter.com/ruhikhan_/status/1449091945591050245 …

Quick mom update: They started her on a new med at a high dose & tomorrow will repeat cardioversion most likely. She has A-Fib with RVR now, which can be deadly. Pulmonary Fibrosis sucks -- it's bad enough you can't breathe well but it takes your heart with it.
