thank you for passing on this link to trial the new Af blog. A site I know well as I also belong to the copd blog site on health unlocked.
I was diagnosed with permanent AF last year. A condition that I am sure started as a result of being low on oxygen saturation in my bloodstream for a long period before I started using oxygen for getting about. I chose to go the managed route as I am one of the lucky ones that have no symptoms. Indeed I only knew I had it as I use a pulse oxygen oximeter and that showed the bouncing around my heart was doing. At the moment I take warfarin and have a stable INR of 2.3. Also another drug to keep my heart beat below 100. It seems to be doing well as mostly it is in the 80's, sometimes in the 60's. My fingers, and toes are crossed that all remains well. I think we have to balance the risks and do our own assessment in many things in life. What I have chosen may not be suitable for someone else. but we are all individuals
