Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of arrhythmia. An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. The heart can beat too fast, too slow, or irregularly.

People who have Atrial Fibrillation may not feel symptoms. However, even when Atrial Fibrillation isn't noticed, it can increase the risk of stroke, chest pain or heart failure.

Join us for this informative presentation as we discuss atrial fibrillation, why it matters, and what options are available for treatment.
