Hattiesburg Clinic’s New ‘Heart Electrician’ Talks AFib, Heart Health on iHeartRadio
“It’s a disease, or more or less a condition, that happens in the aging population. As we age, it just happens that our electrical system gets a little bit – how do I call it – rusty, and then this atrial fibrillation starts to happen…Atrial fibrillation is also a representation of something [else] going on.” – Dr. Diego Alcivar
During a Hotline segment with iHeartRadio’s Steve Headrick, Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular’s newest electrophysiologist Diego Alcivar, MD, FACC, discusses a common but often undiagnosed heart condition, atrial fibrillation (AFib or AF).
Dr. Alcivar explains what AFib is and how to tell if you have it. He also talks about what you can do to prevent it and how “heart electricians” like him treat this condition.
