Atrial Fibrillation Management

How to Managing AFib

HOW TO MANAGE ATRIAL FIBRILLATION

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common condition in which the upper chambers of the heart, or atria, fibrillate. This means that they beat very fast and irregularly so the heart can’t pump blood effectively to the rest of the body. People with AF are nearly 5 times more likely to have a stroke than someone who doesn’t have AF.

 

NORMAL HEARTBEAT

A small pulse of electric current spreads quickly through the heart to make the muscle contract.

In atrial fibrillation, the heart’s upper chambers quiver faster than the rest of the heart.

 

DO YOU NEED A CARDIAC MONITOR?

Accurate information is the key to better healthcare. Irregular heartbeats may occur infrequently, making the underlying condition hard to find and treat. Now, there’s a way. With continuous, long-term monitoring, your doctor can get information about your heart to help find the right answer for you.
