Were you looking for information about Atrial Fibrillation? Atrial filbrillation 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," atrial fibrillation is often associated with current heart problems, but other causes include uncontrolled high blood pressure, thyroid problems, and lung problems. While atrial fibrillation is rarely cured, it can usually be managed with proper treatment. Treatment options include medication and changes in diet and lifestyle.
