Join this noon hour webinar with Dr. Nitish Bahhwar and his colleagues with the Stanford Arrhythmia Service as they provide an overview of the irregular rhythm, Atrial Fibrillation (Afib). The incidence of Atrial Fibrillation increases with age and is associated with an increased risk of stroke. The team will review the conduction abnormality, the symptoms associated with Afib, and provide an overview of management options. They will also discuss lifestyle behaviors that you can adopt to reduce your risk of Afib.

Instructors: Nitish Badhwar, MD, Clinical Professor and Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology Training Program at Stanford. Dr. Badhwar recently began his faculty position at Stanford University in February 2018 and brings his expertise in treating patients with arrhythmias, particularly ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation along with his strong teaching skills to train future electrophysiologists.

Christine Tacklind, ACNP has been with the Stanford Electrophysiology Service for the last 4 years. Prior to becoming an Acute Care Nurse Practioner, Christine spent 12 years as a bed-side nurse in the Stanford Emergency, Trauma and ICU Department.

Linda K. Ottoboni, RN, PhD has been a clinical nurse specialist with the Stanford Electrophysiology Service for several years.
