Atrial Fibrillation and Stroke Risk
February 01, 2022
People with atrial fibrillation (Afib) have up to 5 times greater risk for stroke than other adults. During afib, the atria aren’t moving properly, which slows blood flow and allows blood clots to form in the heart. These clots can then break loose and travel to the brain causing stroke. Learn more about this risk and the latest treatment options, including an innovative device that works as an alternative to blood thinners. An audience question and answer segment is included.
