  • I have afib, drink 2-4 cups of caffeinated coffee per day and don't personally feel it triggers attacks...but we are all different and triggers for afib are almost as complicated as trying to cure the common cold; there are so many factors and each combination of triggers tend to be unique to the individual.
    In fact, about a month ago I was enduring an attack in the morning...and my first sip of hot coffee shut down the attack like a switch; as soon as the liquid entered my esophagus, I went into NSR IMMEDIATELY!!!
  • I had an atrial flutter with rapid ventricular response and systolic congestive heart failure. How is this different from atrial fibrillation?
