Why did I create Dr AFib?

 

 

Transcript:

Thank you for visiting Dr. AFib, I am Dr. Morales. In today’s video segment we are going to be discussing, why did I create Dr. AFib? As I have said in previous video segments, atrial fibrillation is a growing problem, and millions of people of The United States having atrial fibrillation and over 30 million patients across the world have atrial fibrillation.

It’s a little underrepresented in the media; many people don’t know as much about it compared to other heart problems such as coronary heart diseases. I have been specializing in atrial fibrillation for over five years now. I have treated thousands of patients with atrial fibrillation and when patients are first diagnosed they have a lot of the same questions about atrial fibrillation, about what does it mean? What is my risk of strokes? What are my treatment options? Which are all excellent and important questions to have?

Now there is a lot of information out there on the internet, many people like to view things online and do their searches, and there’s a lot of information out there. So how do you make sense of everything and know what is important, what may not be significant, what’s more clinically relevant?

I had often thought about what the best way to reach out to as many people as possible, to give them practical information about living with atrial fibrillation is.

One day I was rounding in the hospital, this was an on the weekend at 6 o’clock in the morning on a Saturday, and that’s when I had my AHA! Moment and that’s when I decided to create a social media page which includes my Facebook page, Dr. AFib website and the YouTube page where I am answering those common questions that people have for atrial fibrillation.

The questions that I discussed in my video segment are the same questions I talk every day with my patients about what it’s like living in atrial fibrillation.
