  • Atrial Fibrillation: What to do for my health (Fraser Health) [English] Public

    Atrial Fibrillation (or A-Fib) is a common heart rhythm problem. The electrical signals that control the heartbeat become irregular and cause the upper part of the heart to quiver (or fibrillate). When this happens, the heart can’t pump very well. It is not life threatening, but needs treatment to prevent complications. When blood is not flowing properly through the heart, it can clot. If a clot travels to the brain, it can cause a stroke.
