Atrial Fibrillation (or AFib) is the most common form of abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia), affecting more than 2.7 million Americans. According to the American Heart Association, even though AFib doubles the risk of heart-related deaths and is associated with a 5-fold increased risk for stroke, many patients are unaware of the seriousness of this condition.

There's good news though. New treatments are available for AFib, giving patients back their quality of life and peace of mind. By developing a consistent relationship with your doctor you detect AFib early and get the help you need.
