Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial Fibrillation (or AFib) is an abnormal heart rhythm, and accounts for 20% of ischemic strokes. Treatment of Afib usually includes anticoagulation.

During atrial fibrillation, the heart’s two upper chambers (the atria) beat chaotically and irregularly — out of coordination with the two lower chambers (the ventricles) of the heart.

Atrial fibrillation symptoms often include heart palpitations, shortness of breath and weakness.
