Atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF or A-fib) is an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) characterized by the rapid and irregular beating of the atrial chambers of the heart. It often begins as short periods of abnormal beating, which become longer or continuous over time. Often episodes have no symptoms. The disease is associated with an increased risk of heart failure, dementia, and stroke.
