Atrial Fibrillation-Irregular Heartbeat

Atrial Fibrillation is an irregular rapid heartbeat which increases the risk of stroke, heart failure, and many other heart related complications. This may lead to clotting of blood forming in the heart which circulates to other organs which ultimately leading to blocked blood flow commonly called as ischemia.
During this atrial fibrillation, the upper chambers of heart known as atria beats chaotically and irregularly without any coordination with the other two lower chambers called ventricles of the heart.

Symptoms of Atrial fibrillation:

People with Atrial fibrillation do not show any specific symptoms and are unaware of their condition until it is discovered during a physical examination. Some of the signs and symptoms of this atrial fibrillation are

·         Palpitations

·         Weakness

·         Reduced Ability to exercise

·         Fatigue

·         Lightheadedness

·         Dizziness

·         Confusion

·         Shortness of breath

·         Chest pain.

Atrial Fibrillation may be occasional, persistent, long standing persistent, permanent.

Complications of atrial fibrillation may lead to stroke, and heart failure.

To prevent atrial fibrillation, a healthy life style should be maintained such as avoiding smoking, reducing stress, limiting the alcohol or caffeine, reducing the stress.

A family history of atrial fibrillation may increase the risk of atrial fibrillation; four types of genetic disorders are associated with atrial fibrillation.
