Controlled AFIB: No longer detected with holter heart monitorAge 88 male: I had ablation on both sides. My Biological age is 50 based on 400 yard, 2 min measure and age 70 based on my hand grip stength. AFIB came back with time which it often does after an ablation. I learned to monitor my arrhythmia using an android software [play store] Arrhythmia Monitor I developed [free] for the public. I monitor my heart rhythm real-time every day using a Zephyr HxM BT sensor on a chest belt [$64.95 Amazon] and displayed on an Android device like a Tablet Smart-phone or iPod Touch.
A recent 7 day [24 hours a day] holter showed I did not have any appreciable AFIB. [My doctor said to check back with him in a year.] I live a healthy lifestyle that includes two types of controlled aerobic exercises and moderate resistance work for strength. I also control my autonomic system and arrhythmia with resonant breathing. I do what works best [WWB] based on what I see on my 1 minute continuous real time display. Based on the display of my arrhythmia I have discontinued specific medications [doctor agreed] as well as some foods and inappropriate exercise. The display of my arrhythmia is based on the timing between the RR pulses of an ECG. Irregular heart rate [PACs & PVCs] are displayed: PACs are positive, i.e. above sinus and PVCs are negative, i.e. below sinus . Often at the end of the day I monitor my arrhythmia on an AliveCor ECG on the same Android device to be sure something more complex is not taking place.
If I can cut-and-paste I intend to include a screen shot of my displayed arrhythmia which includes periodic PACs [ablation scar tissue] that interupt sinus, which is Normal for me. There is also one PVC.
I hope to share this arrhythmia control approach with others in the AMA community.
With a warm and largly periodic heart,
