Mayo partners with senior center

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester is partnering with the senior center and will be here from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 25 and Nov. 3 for a study.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate a program to find atrial fibrillation (AFib) and increase awareness about it in people who have not been diagnosed with AFib.

AFib is a common heart rhythm problem that if untreated may increase a person’s risk for stroke. Many people with AFib may not be aware that they have AFib because they may not have symptoms that cause them to seek medical care. To reduce the risk of having a stroke related to untreated AFib, the Heart Rhythm Society is providing funds to Mayo Clinic and seven other medical centers in the United States to screen people in the community for AFib using mobile devices (as seen above) to record a person’s heart rhythm.

This is open to the public.The study will be done at the senior center and will only take about 20 -30 minutes per participant. There will be no cost to participants and you will be given written information about AFib free of charge.
