Atrial fibrillation awareness month article:
Atrial fibrillation, often called AFib or AF, is the most common type of irregular heartbeat. When a person has AFib, the normal beating in the upper chambers of the heart (the two atria) is irregular, and blood doesn’t flow as well as it should from the atria to the lower chambers of the heart (the two ventricles). This may cause the heartbeat to be less effective when pumping blood to the lungs and body. It can happen in brief episodes, or it may be permanent.
