AFib

UH Specialists Offer Advanced Diagnostics for Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a very common heart rhythm disorder in which the heartbeat is irregular and often very fast. In itself, AFib is not usually life threatening; however, it does put the individual at increased risk for stroke. In fact, people with AFib are at five times greater risk of stroke, especially if they have other heart conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes or have had a prior stroke or heart attack. AFib may also cause heart failure and memory impairment.
