Team AFib™ Unites Patient Advocacy Organizations to Elevate Understanding of Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke
Date:9/7/2011

WASHINGTON, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Team AFib™, a coalition of leading patient advocacy organizations, is unveiling a series of initiatives designed to educate Americans about atrial fibrillation (AFib) and its link to stroke(1) during September's National Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month. Committed to creating a unified approach to raising awareness about AFib and stroke, Team AFib is made up of National Stroke Association, StopAfib.org, Mended Hearts, Inc., Veterans of Foreign Wars, WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease and the National Blood Clot Alliance. Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., as a leader in the AFib community, is proud to sponsor Team AFib.

Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat and a common, serious form of heart arrhythmia(1) that impacts more than 2.3 million Americans.(2)  Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of stroke nearly five-fold(3) and strokes associated with AFib can be twice as deadly(4) or disabling as other types of stroke.(5) The good news is this risk can be significantly reduced.(6)

Team AFib's first initiative is an educational video that takes people on a journey through the body of an AFib patient to show how the heart does not beat the way it should, which can result in the formation of blood clots that can travel from the heart to the brain and cause a stroke.(1) The animated experience, called AFib InSight™, can be found online at www.TeamAFib.com and will be featured at the Team AFib booth at health events across the country. Booth visitors can wear goggles that provide a 3D view of the experience and experts will be on hand to answer questions about the condition. Team AFib and the AFib InSight tour will be in Los Angeles, CA for the "Life @50+ AARP National Event & Expo" on Sept. 22-24. Check www.TeamAFib.com for additional tour stops and more information.
