Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)
Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) is an irregular heart rhythm. It can cause a fast, chaotic rhythm in the atria, the two upper chambers of the heart. Because the rhythm is so quick and chaotic, the atria cannot move the blood effectively into the ventricle.
The isn’t one specific cause for AFib, however, it can be associated with conditions or causes including heart or artery disease, hypertension, pulmonary embolisms, cardiomyopathy, and after heart surgery. AFib can also be related to alcohol use or excessive caffeine use, stress, certain drugs, electrolyte or metabolic imbalances, severe infections, or genetics.
Symptoms may include heart palpitations or fluttering, tiredness, dizziness, chest discomfort, and shortness of breath.
People can live for years with AFib without issues, but it can lead to future problems, including an increased risk of stroke, blood clots, or heart failure.
