Home monitoring for AFib

Posted , 9 users are following.

I had one espisode of Afib last year. Am on Diltiazam and have not had any symptoms since.  What concerns me is asymptomatic AFib.  Does anyone know of a type of wristband that I can wear that would continuously monitor my heart rate and that would show asymptomatic episodes? 

Thank you

      MIne is well controlled with a calcium channel blocker, I cannot comment on the efficacy of other medications.  Ablation seems to work in some, you need to have your stroke risk assessed and make sure you are a surgical candidate and take it from there.  These choices are not easy to make, but sometimes taking the first step will make the others easier and will help you in the long term
