  • Atrial Fibrillation

    Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is indeed an irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia that can lead to various complications. In a normal heart rhythm, the electrical signals coordinate the contractions of the atria and ventricles, allowing for efficient blood flow. However, in atrial fibrillation, the atria beat in a rapid and chaotic manner, causing them to quiver instead of contracting properly. This results in an irregular rhythm and disrupts the coordination with the ventricles.

  • Atrial Fibrillation Treatment Options

    There are two primary treatment strategies for AF: rate control and rhythm control.Rate control focuses on managing the rapid and irregular heartbeat associated with AF. The goal is to slow down the heart rate to a more normal range, typically between 60 and 100 beats per minute at rest. Medications such as beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and digoxin are commonly used to achieve rate control. Slowing down the heart rate can help relieve symptoms such as palpitations, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
