Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a type of arrhythmia that manifests in the atria of the heart and can lead to blood clot formation, stroke or heart failure. The heart rate is rapid and irregular and manifests as palpitations. Other symptoms include weakness and low tolerance to exercise. The treatment goal is to convert and maintain the heartbeat back to normal. 

"Regular endurance training and good fitness seem to protect against serious cardiovascular events and early mortality for people diagnosed with atrial fibrillation." "The results show that people with atrial fibrillation who meet the authorities' recommendations for physical activity...

A study conducted by UAB investigators has outlined the importance of strict blood pressure control in the development of atrial fibrillation, which can lead to poor outcomes such as stroke, heart attacks and death. A new study published by University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers in the inte...

"Regular endurance training and good fitness seem to protect against serious cardiovascular events and early mortality for people diagnosed with atrial fibrillation," says exercise physiologist Lars Elnan Garnvik. "The results show that people with atrial fibrillation who meet the aut...

Dear Reader: Atrial fibrillation is a common heart rhythm disorder, or arrhythmia, that affects anywhere from 2.5 million to 6 million people living in the United States. People living with AFib have an increased risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Without treatment...

DEAR READER: Atrial fibrillation is a common heart rhythm disorder, or arrhythmia, that affects anywhere from 2.5 million to 6 million people living in the United States. The condition gets its name from an electrical malfunction in the upper chambers of the heart, known as atria, which pump blood i...

Chances are, either you or someone in your life will be directly affected by atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is a type of arrhythmia that affects the top chambers of the heart. Individuals having a first-degree relative with Afib have approximately a 40% increased risk for developing the co...

In a recently published study, researchers from Aarhus University document that the risk of atrial fibrillation is not linked to the amount of body fat, but instead to large muscle mass, or more precisely, a high fat-free weight. Researchers from Aarhus University document that the risk of atrial fi...
