Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of arrhythmia. It is caused by an abnormal contraction in the atria. The incidence of this disorder is constantly increasing and it’s estimated that the number of people suffering from it will double in the next 30 years. Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of a stroke fivefold and often causes a significant decrease in quality of life due to its symptoms (fatigue, shortness of breath, palpitations, etc.). A diagnosis often raises many questions: What’s causing it? Should I take a blood thinner? How can I get rid of the arrhythmia episodes? How can I get back to normal life? This book was written to help patients become an active participant in their health by providing: - Clear explanations to help you understand atrial fibrillation
