Improving Cardiovascular Disease Outcomes
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of irregular heartbeat. Normally, the heart beats in a strong, steady rhythm. In people with AF, a problem with the heart's electrical system causes the two upper parts of the heart (called the atria) to quiver, or fibrillate.
