Atrial Fibrillation or AFib is the most common type of irregular heart rhythm, with 2.7 million Americans living with the condition. With AFIB the upper chambers of the heart (atria) beat irregularly and cause the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles) to pump blood abnormally and ineffectively throughout the body. Over time, AFib may become more frequent and longer lasting, sometimes leading to permanent or chronic AFib. All types of AFib can increase your risk of stroke. Even if you have no symptoms at all, you are nearly 5 times more likely to have a stroke than someone who doesn’t have atrial fibrillation.
Memorial Hospital’s AFib Clinic uses a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to determine the best treatment option for each individual patient.
Using advanced technology and innovative techniques, interventional cardiologists are improving the outcomes for patients with AFib, helping them live longer, healthier lives.
