Hi everyone, waiting to fly home after a ski touring trip in the Atlas Mountains. Unfortunately I think the altitude and effort triggered my first AF attack for over 3 years post cryo ablation. I was staying at a 3000m refuge for 3 days but the approach was over 3500m col. Had a few strange ectopics during the climb up to the col and the same the next day at around the same altitude. I have been operating fairly regularly at that altitude so nothing particularly new there. Later that night in the refuge I recorded what looks like a proper AF session. Converted shortly after fortunately. Made the decision to get down to lower altitude and exited the mountains by not entirely conventional means.
Well, it’s been a great 3 years. I’m guessing I’m on the 2nd ablation path now. I’ll make an EP appointment as soon as I get home. Any comments on the ECG appreciated.
