Cardiac Arrhythmia Information
During AFib, the atria (the heart’s upper chambers) quivers and beats irregularly and can reduce your heart’s ability to effectively move blood through the rest of your heart and blood vessels. While only a third of the patients with AFib experience severe symptoms, your blood clots and stroke risk significantly increase. Factors that can make you at increased risk of Atrial Fibrillation include:
- Old Age
- High Blood Pressure
- Heart Disease
- Regular Alcohol Consumption
- Family History of AFib
- Sleep Apnea
- Other Chronic Conditions: hyperthyroidism, diabetes, etc.
