Atrial fibrillation (A-fib) is the most common type of irregular heartbeat, affecting approximately 2.6 million people in the United States.
The incidence of atrial fibrillation increases with age, and its prevalence in individuals 80 and older is about 9%.
Some people with A-fib don't feel a thing; others may notice that their pulse is racing, fluttering or too slow. Whether it's felt or not, A-fib is a serious condition that left untreated can lead to heart failure, stroke and even death.
Join UC Irvine Health nurse practitioner Debra Lai as she discusses the symptoms of atrial fibrillation, how it's treated and more. You will have an opportunity to ask questions after the presentation.
