Managing Atrial Fibrillation With Lifestyle Changes Dr. Christine Albert
"Thought we could start by discussing some of your major contributions to the management of atrial fibrillation even since my medical school days. It seems like the emphasis. On lifestyle management for diseases such as atrial fibrillation has increased exponentially as we learn more about arrhythmia mechanisms and now we specifically screen patients for sleep apnea diet alcohol use et cetera. So from all of the landmark clinical research that you've conducted over your career. That's far could you. Maybe summarize for us. What you feel are the biggest takeaways whether in eighth hundred prevention or in any of your other areas that sudden cardiac death. Thank you when i started doing. Research on the epidemiology of heart rhythm disorders really wasn't an emphasis as you say on. Risk factors for h. fibrillation or sudden cardiac death. And then you know a group of us not just myself but amelia benjamin in the premium study and patrick eleanor. We all started to get interested in looking at atrial fibrillation as you would cardiovascular disease and some of the major findings are really related to lifestyle and how it can impact each relation including body mass index. And wait and wait reduction. We've done several studies. One who first authors tetreault who's also electro physiologist at brigham women's hospital and she published a very important study in jack. Where we showed in bunks women. Even being slightly overweight had elevated to risk of fibrillation. And then if you lost weight you lower that risk. And in addition some of the other research we did was around. Exercise and showing that exercise is beneficial to atrial fibrillation. But as we all know too much. Exercise can actually have an adverse effect and this again was a study that was done by tony acer who was also an electro physiologist and his now at nyu worked with me for a while. So both of those manuscripts were very important. With regards management of atrial fibrillation. In addition we also published one of the first studies looking at alcohol intake and h fibrillation. Now there have been multiple multiple studies showing that alcohol is related to atrial fibrillation. And as you know a randomized trial now that shows that if you abstained from alcohol you lower your risk of atrial fibrillation so all of these studies are not just by myself but multiple. Investigators have really changed the practice where we as clinicians think about lowering. Risk factors as electra physiologists event and approach sanders. Work in australia really took it to another level by actually doing clinical trial in showing that reduction of weight and modifying risk factors lowers incidence of atrial fibrillation. So now it's really one of our pillars of treatment and it is rewarding to see something go from observational research to clinical trials in actually to

Double and this thing's mouth is council has been out for a while. And I didn't need to buy clarity about my Mega S G and I bought that before this. Genesis mini was announced but the genesis many was made by I am too and it was incredible and I kept buying new all knew I was going to buy it one day and I was at Tarleton. You you are too retro consoles as I am to. VR heads but my lease minor cheaper.

VR headsets are going to be hilarious. The Index Committee. It fits on your finger. Finally your hand doesn't like a sock puppet. Yeah I was at target doing what you do. At target buying a piece of fruit pack of underwear and whatever else you find at target and they had these on the end cap and it was fifty nine bucks so bought about one hour talking about Tetris. On Genesis it is not good so lots of history and should've stayed losses. What you're saying? Yeah it's tough. Because I haven't played Gameboy Tetris in a very long time and this is coming from tetris effect polio polio. Ninety nine all of the amazing versions of Tetris. I that are out across the world that that game. You think it's the same game but you don't realize how much has changed and the thing that hit me the most about this game two things one one. It doesn't have Subaru tation and so that means when you have like the like the long I can I- piece next to the wall. It can't turn words I of course CF to got into the middle and tenant and then she over which when you're have a tall build very much changes the game and to according to physics of course that's how it would work but according to Tetris physics that we've all bought into over the last whatever it is fifteen years and super rotations. Been in it. You really take that that for granted. It's like when you have a a tetreault against the the side it won't turn man I was. I was playing poorly Genesis Tetris also does not have a hold cue which is where he gets to save a peace for later. which if you played tetris effects or ninety nine? You know how vital that is like. If you're like me the first piece you get that immediately goes goes goes into hold as you get out of jail card. It doesn't have that only shows you one piece that's coming up next versus a standard is like three. Now I think also the most fascinating the default controls on Genesis. All three buttons are on the Genesis. I should say all three buttons. ABC rotated take. I believe it's clockwise but rotate at the same direction. Is You have to go into options. To change it to have clockwise counterclockwise and to assign hardrock op which is where you know you just place it immediately which matters when you're trying to rack up scores in times like that. Can I ask you a quick question. What kind of person buys the genesis to play Tetris? The type of person who already has all the Games on their Mega S G and was looking for an excuse to by genesis may in

DC right now standing on the steps of the Jefferson memorial and a beautiful sunny day this podcast has recorded on three fifty two eastern on Thursday. January third things will have changed by the time. You hear this? Here's the show. Hey there. It's the NPR politics podcast here with a weekly roundup of the week's biggest political stories Nancy Pelosi is once again speaker of the house it's official and Elizabeth Warren kicked off twenty nineteen by saying she's running for president. I'm Scott Tetreault. I cover congress. I must that cover politics of Dominica much narrow political editor. And I'm Ron Elving editor correspondent, all right? So we have known for couple months, obviously, the Democrats would take back control of the house of representatives. But today new session began early this afternoon. It was a fischel Democrats are now in charge and Nancy Pelosi won the election to be speaker of the house. So here, we are and nation is an historic moment. Two months ago. The American people spoke and demanded a new dawn they called upon the beauty of our constitution. Our system of checks and balances that protects our democracy. Remembering that, the legislative branch is article one the first branch of government co equal to the presidency and to the judiciary? It's got you were there. Yeah. I was there. And you heard you heard a baby crying in the middle that cut right there. The first day of a new session is always this very Serra. Omonia jam packed day in congress because all of the new members of the returning members or their former members are on the floor that day as well. Their families are on the floor that day and increasingly more and more members bring their kids with them. So the house of representatives was just filled with these wiggly kids because this is the thing that lasts a couple hours. So you had these kids standing up and yelling four Pelosi or Kevin McCarthy with their parents when they were voting it was a pretty pack seen Pelosi won the speakers vote by by you know, so not comfortable margin. Yes. She had enough votes that she could let some people go. In a dozen. Did a dozen Democrats did not vote for her. They voted for various incendiary people some voted for each other. And then some voted for senators like Tammy Duckworth. There was a vote for Stacey Abrams who was the democratic candidate for governor unsuccessful in Georgia vote for Joe Biden of vote for Joe Biden, and you know, these are just symbolic boats. It doesn't really matter. It was clear she was going to have enough. So. So there you have it. That's us a reminder that you don't actually have to be in the house to become speaker. If this if they wanted to vote for someone like that. But you don't have to be Catholic to be pope. And they all have is never. And the house speaker is pretty much the same deal. They've all been members one one funny quirk is that there's all this formality about the new speaker being announced, and there's this like committee that forms to present them and part of it is your entire congressional delegation from your home state. But because California is Pelosi's delagation, and is so enormous this fifty three person delegation, and it just took forever as they walked in and in and in. Yeah.

This just have to mention almost ninety percent of the Republican conference of the Republicans in the house are white males and sitting over on their sides. They they look sort of like the senior men's chorus all dressed like and all looking kind of alike, and then on the other side you had this new House Democratic caucus which is just down around forty percent, white males less than half as many in percentage. Terms. It looks like a session of the United Nations General assembly. I'd like to point out that the fashion choices were also remark. Better on that side.

There is a formal vote on the house floor in January. Gary and Pelosi still has a little bit more work to do to get to the votes that she needs to win that election in January, but she won today's election. She was the only nominee. So that's probably not surprising. But she did earn two hundred three. Yes votes, which is an interesting number to talk about let's get into that.

Casey is precedent on precedent, which itself is an important factor to remember. And I understand the significance of the issue, the jurisprudential issue, and I understand the significance as best I can. I always try and I do hear of the real world effects of that decision as I tried to do of all the decisions of my court and of the supreme court Scott. Could you parse that answer out for us? He went on to say, I don't live in a bubble. I understand. I live in the real world. I understand the importance of the issue hard to tell what exactly he meant, but but I think one easy inferno is that he's indicating that he understands how drastic a shift it would be if the supreme court were to suddenly. Throw out Roe v Wade and rulings at a fall at it and say that states have the rights to outright ban abortion going back to how the law by March was before Roe v, Wade that would obviously have drastic consequences on a lot of people and become a top tier really divisive political issue. That seems to be what he was indicating. But again, I don't know exactly what he meant and I don't think the senators know exactly what he meant, but that seems to be as closest that he's going to come to to talking about his personal view on or how he would rule on a roll, v, Wade type case. If Brad Kavanagh is confirmed, would he take his seat in time for the courts next germ which begins next month? I think I think he wouldn't. I think that's part of the time line that that send a majority leader, Mitch McConnell has been aiming for.

"Furthermore the rules of congress are such that there might be pieces of legislation that could pass if he gets some republican votes with most democratic votes at news bills will never come to a vote because only bills with the majority of the majority supporting them ever come up it is not weird that the parties are apart and it would not be that much better if they got along they were nice to each other seems like it would make a big difference tone comportment or nicety bin that's what everyone's saying here scott tetreault and npr i think a lot of people who engage in politics view the other party is one onedimensional driven by the worst possible motivations and i think what a lot of lawmakers were saying last night was was they're not goes suddenly going to agreed there is a lot of disagreement on basically every issue right now they were saying which need to talk to each other like human beings what what if republicans and democrats were nice to each other got along great knitted sheafs of blankets quilts covering every member's grand kid but then after that they tried to write legislation in secret that we take healthcare away from twenty three million people how important would obey to you if you lost your health care coverage if the leaders who wrote that got along famously on weekends are on the same bowling team all right so that's the part of the argument that goes maybe even if they disagree they could be nice about it sure i say they mostly are right there is talk about my good friend on the other side of the aisle that mostly not that nasty in public doesn't really matter there is a little tweak of that argument remember the one that says if they disagree they could be nice about it there's a tweet that says will maybe if they're nice about it they won't disagree as much at on think that's true we either also suspect that the public or members of the public primaries would punish them for it and a further suspect that the rightwing blather sphere would enforce codes to prevent much true bone me the left is pretty quick also to call bigotry on republicans.
