Is that holding your breath and trying to blow at the same time?


Like...putting your thumb in your moth and sealing it, then blowing hard????

It stops it as well as a 50000 surgical procedure. (And lasts just as long) Seems that physicians arent above jacking us off for some extra cash

I get the odd flutter when stressed.


My GP told me about that technique years and years ago.

Well, when one is in AT fib almost all the time, it gets annoying and (were I a serious worrier----ok I am a serious worrier) Id be more concerned. But having e-mailed some physician friends and having them work out some details, I am convinced that one can live with at fib and live a ripe old fart age, just with a syncopated beat.

Id be like MILES , cooooooool

Now they want me to go in for some exploratory surgery on Dec 10. Im told that they may use a laser to correct this and then they will shock my heart into sinus rhythm.
I dont know, I think I should cause its not getting any better , the VAlSalva seems to work for only a few minutes.

As I understand, its a "open up a peep hole, insert some tiny equipment up into his heart and then turn the sucker on" kind of surgery

I guess I think this is a good move. (Such an expert she sounds.)

I admire your scientific detachment--and wish the surgeon a steady hand (and reliable power supply).

Sounds like you and Dick Cheney are having similar procedures. Hope things go as well for you, Farmerdude.
