Atrial Fibrilation

Were you looking for information about Atrial Fibrillation? Atrial fibrilation is a common misspelling of atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation is a condition in which the heart beats either faster or slower than normal. Also referred to as "a-fib," the condition is often associated with current heart problems, but other causes include uncontrolled high blood pressure, thyroid problems, and lung problems. Each year, over 2 million people in the United States will experience it. Because it can be scary to experience an episode of atrial fibrillation, a lot of people worry that they are having a heart attack, or will have one later. However, it is different from a heart attack.
While the condition is rarely cured, it can usually be managed with proper treatment. Treatment options include medication and changes in diet and lifestyle. There are also several procedures that can be done.
