Listen to the Rhythm of Your Heart

Join NBCA in taking a closer look at atrial fibrillation, or AFib, in connection with National Heart Month, recognized each February. AFib is the most common form of irregular heart beat or arrhythmia, and a risk factor for clot-provoked stroke. Heart Month 2018 provides a prime opportunity for us to contribute to important AFib dialogue taking place nationwide this month, and to share the many resources we have available on the topic, including an AFib learning module for healthcare professionals. We encourage you to take care of your heart this month and learn more about AFib

In this month's MASAB Memo, Dr. Jack Ansell shares his expert views about whether or not people prescribed warfarin can experience better outcomes with
INR home monitoring.
