AFib, the “Electrical Epidemic” - Dr. Aseem Desai, Cardiac Electrophysiologist and Author
People with Atrial Fibrillation, or AFib, just have to learn to live with it, right? Wrong, says Dr. Aseem Desai. While AFib, which he calls "the electrical epidemic”, can be a challenging condition to treat, there is much that can be done to tame symptoms and improve quality of life even for those with "permanent" AFib. In this episode of Raise the Line, Dr. Desai talks with host Dr. Rishi Desai about the origins of his interest in cardiology, his new book, Restart Your Heart: The Playbook for Thriving with AFib, and the fascinating brain-heart relationship. He also shares how meditation has been a game changer for him personally, and offers valuable advice for those entering the healthcare field.
