Know All Your Risks- Check Out Our Latest Know Stroke Podcast where we spotlight Afib and a new technology that is using voice to save lives!

As we close out September, you might not know it is also Afib Awareness Month.

Atrial fibrillation (Afib) is the most common irregular heartbeat and is characterized by heart palpitations, dizziness, and shortness of breath. Afib is sometimes silent and may not exhibit symptoms at all yet it increases stroke risk and can lead to heart failure, kidney problems and dementia. It can also increase your risk of death so early detection and treatment is critical to reduce risk.

We thought it would be a great time to spotlight Afib on this week’s Know Stroke Podcast

On today’s show we were joined by James Amihood, CEO of Cardiokol
