Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a quivering or irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. According to the American Heart Association, at least 2.7 million Americans are living with atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib. It is important to recognize potential risk factors, such as advanced age, high blood pressure, underlying heart disease, family history and sleep apnea because often AFIB has no symptoms at all. If you have AFib, creating a treatment plan with a physician and sticking to it you can lower your risks and improve your life. Learn more at Heart.org/AFIB
