Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
S/p coronary stent ~ 2 years ago. Recent onset SOB relieved by discontinuing the cipro and using the symbicort. But the symptoms returned shortly after starting the inhaler and discontinuing the cipro. The pulmonary function test showed non cardiac asthma. The breo does not work as well. Possibly the SOB is due to the cozaar? Lytes and CBC are normal. Non smoker X 35 years though prior was a heavy smoker.
From this study (4 months ago):
Ablation to treat atrial fibrillation resulted in atypical flutter ECG reading. Still awaiting treatment for this after 6 months wait
