Understanding the Risk

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is an interruption in your heart's precision beating, creating an irregular and often rapid heart rate. AFib often begins as brief periods of abnormal beating, which become longer and longer over time. Though there are usually no symptoms, atrial fibrillation must be taken seriously because it can increase your risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart related complications.

AFib is more common in men than women, and risk increases with age. The three main types of atrial fibrillation are paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, which occurs briefly and then goes away, persistent atrial fibrillation, which lasts longer than seven days and persistent atrial fibrillation, which lasts a year.

Living with AFib

Although it is a serious condition, with the right treatment and care, most people with AFib can lead normal, active, healthy lives. At INTEGRIS Health, our goal is to provide you with that expert care and attention, so you can live many more fulfilling, happy years.
