 BOSTON – New research reports significant differences between men and women with atrial fibrillation (AF) and the safety of intense physical activity. The study found that both moderate and vigorous levels of exercise are safe for women living with AF. However, vigorous levels of exercise are associated with an increased risk of AF in men. The research, analyzing data from a large-scale or robust patient population of nearly 380,000 patients, was presented today at Heart Rhythm 2015, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 36th Annual Scientific Sessions.

Today, Heart Rhythm 2015, the Heart Rhythm Society’s (HRS) 36th Annual Scientific Sessions and this year’s leading conference on cardiac arrhythmias commences at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. This year’s meeting will focus on the power of interactivity – how networks, both technological and personal, are connecting to propel the science, discovery, and innovation of the electrophysiology (EP) field.
