Presented by Qiangjun Cai, MD, McFarland Clinic Cardiology
Atrial Fibrillation is an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) that starts in the upper part (atria) of the heart. This arrhythmia is very common in people older than 60 and is the most common type of persistent irregular heartbeat. Normally the heart beats in a strong, steady rhythm. In atrial fibrillation the atria quiver, upsetting the normal rhythm between the upper and lower parts of the heart. Atrial fibrillation is dangerous because it increases the risk of stroke.
Join McFarland Clinic’s newest Cardiologist Qiangjun Cai, MD in a discussion on causes, symptoms and treatment of atrial fibrillation.
