Valley Electrophysiologist to Present Program on Atrial Fibrillation

 
  

Join Valley Hospital Electrophysiologist Dan L. Musat, M.D., on Wednesday, September 27, when he presents “Get Your Beat Back,” an exploration of the risk factors, symptoms, and treatments for atrial fibrillation, a condition defined by an irregular heartbeat.

The program will be held at 7 p.m. at the Washington Township Library, 144 Woodfield Road. To register, call 1-800-825-5391 (1-800-VALLEY 1) or go to www.ValleyHealth.com/Events and register online.  This program is free.

Atrial fibrillation, the most common type of abnormal heart rhythm, is not usually life-threatening. If untreated, however, it can increase the risk of stroke five-fold, according to the American Heart Association, and it can also lead to congestive heart failure and chronic fatigue.

In people with atrial fibrillation, the heart's upper chambers quiver instead of beat effectively. This can cause blood to pool and clot, potentially leading to a stroke. Normally the heart contracts and relaxes in a coordinated rhythm.

If you are unable to attend this program, but would like to contact Dr. Musat, he can be reached at 201-432-7837.
