Atrial Fibrillation

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This three-page illustrated handout educates people about atrial fibrillation (A-fib, atrial fib, or AF), an abnormal heart rhythm, or arrhythmia. It explains that the heart’s rhythm is controlled by electrical signals in the heart, and discusses the role of the sinus node. It describes signs of atrial fib, and clarifies that those with the condition are at a higher risk for stroke or serious heart problems if it is not controlled. The document discusses what your doctor will check for, testing for atrial fib with an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) and Holter monitoring, and treatment.
