Atrial Fibrillation is the most common type of heart arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat). It occurs when the heart’s upper chambers (the atria) beat irregularly or quiver. Without an effective heartbeat blood isn't pumped completely out of the atria, causing blood to pool and possibly clot. A clot can travel to other parts of the body, including the brain, where it may result in stroke.
*Recommended guidelines only. Consult with your physician.
Even though not everybody with atrial fibrillation experiences symptoms, these warning signs may indicate heart issues:
