Facing Afib: Get Serious About Stroke
Atrial fibrillation, or afib, is a heart arrhythmia affecting approximately 2.3 million Americans. Afib is caused by chaotic electrical activity in the heart muscle which results in a ‘quivering’ contraction of the two upper chambers instead of a coordinated beat. Afib-related strokes are much more deadly than a stroke that is not associated with this arrhythmia. In this video, learn more about how atrial fibrillation can lead to stroke and how to spread awareness of this heart condition.
