When I was hospitalised in 2014 with pulmonary toxicity / cryptogenic organising pnuemonia from prescribed Dronedarone, I was surprised that the young doctors had not heard of Dronedarone. I'm now one of the "mystery patients" that trainee doctors have to diagnose in the local health centre: in my case this is a stroke linked to AF despite a very healthy lifestyle. This week the GP leading the session said that he'd never heard of Dronedarone. I think that we have a lot to do in the AF community. As part of spreading the message I'm aware of a two minute video to be released to clinicians in the UK and USA about taking an anticoagulant when you have AF, even though you have a healthy lifestyle.
