World Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Day Successfully Commemorated Across The Globe
In Tulsa, Oklahoma, Dr. David Sandler and his team from the Oklahoma Heart Institute organized Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Day by providing a free lecture and yoga session. The event was held at the Oklahoma Heart Institute in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was open to the public. Dr. David Sandler opened the session with a review of the global impact of Atrial Fibrillation and the various treatment options. He described the traditional medical treatments and the concept of yoga as a method of preventing and reducing the burden of AF physically and psychosomatically. Jennifer Skaggs, a local yoga instructor and former patient was introduced. She proceeded to mesmerize the crowd with her story of overcoming medical issues with the help of her doctors as well as yoga. Her 30-minute yoga session left the crowd rejuvenated and inspired. All participants received a free yoga mat, courtesy of the Oklahoma Heart Institute.
In Scottsdale, Arizona Dr. Vijay Swarup from the Arizona Heart Rhythm Center led the World AF Awareness Day celebrations. There was a lecture followed by a 5K Run/Walk. Dr. Swarup states, "AF has reached epidemic proportion both in the developed and developing nations and we need a concerted awareness campaign to educate not only patients but also health care providers about the importance of early intervention."
