Penn AF Care Program

We’re always looking for ways to better treat and serve our patients.

One recent development is the creation of the Penn AF Care program. This new initiative identifies patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) that have risk factors such as obesity, sleep apnea and/or poorly controlled blood pressure. Treating these risk factors has been shown to improve the success of treatment for AF patients.

The team from Penn AF Care works directly with eligible patients to modify these risk factors by facilitating weight management, optimizing sleep apnea care and improving blood pressure control. This innovative program brings together providers from across the Penn Health System to help patients improve their quality of life through more complete management of their heart rhythm condition.

​Penn AF Care is led by cardiac electrophysiologist Sanjay Dixit, MD and Amaryah Yaeger, BSN, RN.
