Harbaugh having heart procedure

Hope Jim loses that gut. I want this guy to be the 49ers coach for a VERY long time. Stay healthy Jim!

He sounds like he really slurring alot of his words in that video. Wonder what that procedure really does to a person.

Yeah, that's how people sound right after they have a stroke or something.

It "resets" your heart back into normal rhythm, that's it. Strokes affect the brain. Look up cardioversion, or read diablo's posts. People hear heart and assume the worst. This is seriously not that big a deal. lol

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

When I had mine done my heart rate was 120 and very irregular. One kinda silly thing I remember, is the head paramedic came in and gave me Versed. It's 2 meds you mix and it turns milky white and they called it "milk of amnesia" since it sedates you pretty nicely. I still remember every moment of it though...it hurt!

I have delivered the shock to a patient causing him to literally jump up from the bed momentarily like in movies. As I progress in my training, I like to know what patients experience with any test or procedure I order for them. I asked one patient who had an internal defibrillator what it felt like when it went off. Being a guy who used to work on a farm he said it is like a horse kicking you in the chest with all its strength .
media presser today cancelled due to follow-up on heart procedure....
Cmon Harbaugh. We don't need this s**t. Get your act together and get healthy.
Has harbaugh been cleared?
See how frail he looked at his presser last night? Having to deal with both a new baby and Alex Smith? I'd have heart trouble too.

Just read an article stating that he has given up his chewing tobacco and 5-6 diet coke a day habits. No wonder he looks wiped out. If you thought he was ornery before, I'd hate to cross him without his vices.
he's got it licked don't worry about harbs
He quit chew tobacco...for shame.
