PATIENT EDUCATION ::
Atrial Fibrillation

  • • Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal rhythm of the heart
  • • Atrial fibrillation is caused by abnormal electrical discharges within the   atria ( one of the chambers of the heart)
  • • Atrial fibrillation reduces the ability of the atria to pump blood into the   ventricles and usually causes the heart to beat too rapidly
  • • Symptoms of atrial fibrillation include palpitations, dizziness, fainting,    weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath and chest pain although some    people have no symptoms
  • • Symptoms of diabetes include increased urine output, thirst and hunger    as well as fatigue
  • • Complications of atrial fibrillation include heart failure and stroke
  • • Atrial fibrillation can be diagnosed by physical examination,    electrocardiogram, Holter monitor or patient-activated event recorder
