Understanding Atrial Fibrillation [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 3 years ago

Do you find yourself feeling fatigued on a daily basis, no matter how much rest you get? Does your heart sometimes start pounding or fluttering in your chest without cause? If so, you may be suffering from atrial fibrillation, or AFib. This condition results from disorganized electrical signals that prompt the upper chambers of the heart to beat more rapidly than normal and out of sync with the lower chambers. Stroke, heart failure, and other serious medical conditions may develop as a result of AFib, so it’s essential to speak to a cardiologist at your St. Petersburg hospital if you’re experiencing AFib symptoms. To learn more about this condition, take a look at this infographic from Northside Hospital. Remember, if you’re experiencing chest pain, it’s essential to get to an emergency room right away instead of waiting for your pain to resolve itself. Please share this important heart health information with your friends and loved ones.
