"He's feeling good," John Harbaugh said of his younger brother today. "He had a little procedure. He's had it before. I guess it's a little more advanced now [with] his heart rate and things like that. So, it should correct that. He's back at work today from what I understand."

Eric Branch ‏@Eric_Branch #49ers Jim Harbaugh told by doctors to cut down on caffeine.

Dude was probably chugging 5 hour energy shots like it was water
It isnt surprising that this isnt the first time he has been in atrial fibrillation. It can occur acutely, chronically or intermittently. It comes back in many even after cardioversion. Ultimately he may eventually go on a beta blocker (like metoprolol) and a blood thinner (like warfarin). It isnt an issue that will prevent him from doing his job.

The comment from his brother about it being more advanced isnt entirely accurate. Atrial fibrillation makes your heart rate irregular. Basically, if you felt his pulse it would occur with variable time intervals between beats.

What his brother was likely referring to was that Jim had something called atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response. In other words, the atrial fibrillation was also causing his heart rate to run a bit high (likely 100s to 130s). So he had an irregular and also fast rhythm

I'm sure he's not the only coach with serious health problems. Most of these guys are overweight and haven't seen their feet in years.
He's back!!

Harb is back but I doubt his heart can take another lousy OT tie from CK.

First time poster and this is the best you can do? If you had looked at the whole picture, it didn't even need to have come down to an OT.

Here you want to blame CK, others David Akers ... when the REAL problem (in this case) was the special teams that allowed TWO fake punts and the inability of the Defensive coordinator to put two people on Danny Amendola after it became obvious that he was the go to guy.

The game should have been over in regulation time.
I say come sunday ! PRAY for J.H.coachs health and a 49ers WIN! come monday night . what do you guys think? let do it for jim
