BEAT AFib: Study Updates

Our team is comprised of talented and diverse academic physicians and researchers who want to find ways to prevent and treat atrial fibrillation.  We value each of our study participants and will use this space to share updates and findings as the study continues.  We appreciate the dedication and commitment to the study from all of our participants. We can do this together!

Just a few things we’re investigating:

  • Can markers in blood, features on imaging and EKGs, and digital biomarkers of behavior (sleep, exercise, and stress) predict occurrence, progression or discrete episodes of atrial fibrillation?
  • Can we use these markers to develop new ways to identify those most at risk for atrial fibrillation?
  • Can we develop ways to prevent the development of atrial fibrillation in those most at risk?
  • Can we develop ways to modify behavior or physiologic changes that predict a future episode to atrial fibrillation?
