I am not aware that I am in a fib at times until I take my blood pressure for routine monitoring. Is there a device l could wear that would alert me?

Hi @cadillac, welcome to Connect. You'll notice that I moved your message to this discussion about atrial fibrillation episodes in the Heart Rhythm Conditions group (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/heart-rhythm-conditions/). Here you'll find many people discussing aFib.

Cadillac, you ask about not being aware when you have an episode until you take your blood pressure and if there is a device you could wear to alert you. I'd like to bring others into the discussion to help answer your questions, like @jimana @predictable @sal70 @karenatmayo and @sandyabbey

Cadillac, are there times that you are aware of having an a-fib episode? How long have you been monitoring your blood pressure?
