Did you know that atrial fibrillation affects over 6 million Americans, and the incidence is increasing? Did you know that atrial fibrillation is responsible for causing over 75,000 strokes each year in the U.S.? While these statistics are scary, learning about atrial fibrillation is not. You can reduce your risk of atrial fibrillation and atrial fibrillation-related complications by learning more about how to prevent and treat this very common electrical disorder.
