If you leave it there, sure, but I can count on two fingers over 11 years how many times I’ve seen RVR go over 200 and only heard of a random case of 300. It generally doesn’t happen with paroxysmal afib... not that high. 

Kaleb was over 300...

What do you do if you don’t mind my asking.

Not sure if they are positive about that or how they measured it. It’s generally transient and for some people asymptomatic. He could be that case. 

Anesthesia and worked in a cardiothoracic surgery icu as a nurse for some years.

In the field we would cardiovert which was violent af and I always felt bad but it worked.

Short term would be two months, long term 5-10 years. 

Thanks, lets hope the Falcons Dr.s are better than Kaleb's college Dr.s and finally get this fixed.

Reminds me of Abraham, he had several surgeries for groin tears, then, when he got here, they did a surgery that fixed the problem not the symptoms and he never needed another one.

Yeah, I know completely different procedures, still hoping for the same result- no more procedures necessary.

Not only do you not draft a guy in the 1st rd with a known heart condition you certainly don't freaking trade picks to move up back in the first to get said player who you knew had a heart condition.

Seriously WTF was TD thinking?

I don't blame you for thinking this way tbh , there was another player that this board didn't want because of a heart issue

That’s awesome work, bro.  Tough job, but very rewarding I suspect.

Several articles reference his heart rate.  Here is one from draft network

"Everything I've managed to hit with my face, hit that spot."

The list of objects that may lurk at eye level doesn't bother most. For Kaleb McGary, it’s always at the front of his mind: Doorframes. Barbells on weight racks. Ceiling fans — which he usually breaks.

When they do break, he calls that “winning.”

Over time, a thick knob has grown on the bridge of his nose — faint scars dance across it. One is from his old locker room, wherein the seats of the lockers hinged open to allow for storage below. McGary thought he had balanced the old, oaken seat upright before peering underneath; he was covered in blood and getting stitches a few minutes later. Another is from the bleachers of the Fife High School gymnasium, where McGary collapsed in the fourth quarter of a basketball game, his heart beating 300 times per minute.

“If you look, there is still a mark on that bench,” McGary says hastily as he recalls the story. It’s a detail he’s unwilling to forget. “I think I won that.”

Most of the times it’s transient and vanishes by the time personnel show up with proper monitors. This is intriguing. It’s probably why I rarely ever see it (I’m not a first responder)  because it’s gone by the time the patient eventually gets to the ER, OR, or cath lab.

Atlanta is a health and medical Mecca. Hopefully the docs we have doing it are better than where he was before. Usually facilities like Emory and Duke (both alma maters :P) are involved in the evolution of procedure he is about to have. Hopefully it’s fixed right this time.

I bet he’s back on the practice field by the time the season starts 

Probably. Taking it slowly but yeah if it goes well we still have over a month.

If he does play, I expect him to miss at least the first two games of the year.

Matt Gono’s chances of making the 53man just went up tho, IMO. Especially if they cross train him enough as OG depth.
