Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • I have been wondering if hypokalemia and lifetime asymptomatic persistent chronic pvcs could have caused my recent AFIB episode. I take potassium to counter the potential potassium loss resulting from the furosemide / lasix.

    I also exercise vigorously (cardio vascular heart rate - walking at 4 mph, six miles, five days per week), and have been doing this for three years since the CHF diagnosis. I have no other symptoms from the CHF (NYHA class one). I am scheduled for an EKG tomorrow to find out if normal sinus rhythm has been restored.
