What is AFib?

Atrial fibrillation is an irregular and frequently fast heart rate that can raise your risk of strokes, heart failure, and other heart-related issues.

During atrial fibrillation, the two top chambers of the heart (the atria) beat irregularly chaotically — with no coordination with the two bottom chambers (the ventricles) of the heart. Atrial fibrillation symptoms often contain heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and weakness.

Atrial fibrillation might come and disappear, but unfortunately in some cases, you might get atrial fibrillation that doesn’t disappear and may need treatment. Even Though atrial fibrillation frequently isn’t life-threatening, it is a severe medical condition that often needs emergency therapy.

A prime worry with atrial fibrillation is the possibility to develop blood clots within the heart’s top chambers. These blood clots shaping in the heart may spread to other organs and give birth to blocked blood flow (ischemia).

Medications and treatment interventions are all involved in the therapy of atrial fibrillation in order to try to alter the heart’s electrical system.
