Being trying a new technique to stop an arrhythmia.

Basically pushing down on the diaphragm really hard, like being pregnant and pushing the baby out and pressing on the vagus nerve. Fill your lungs to help with the pressure then tension the stomach muscles hard, pressing down and hold. I have been doing it for a count of ten, perhaps couple of times immediately the arrhythmia is detected.

So in bed this morning 5.30 I was woken by AF and again this evening after loading the trailer with kayaks after the pool session. Both times the AF cleared up. I also tried this morning when AF started on getting up, it did not work. But 2 out 3 today is pretty good. I suspect it postpones rather than means the AF goes away but hey that's still good in my book.
