More than 2 million people in the United States are living with atrial fibrillation (AFib). This heart rhythm disorder may appear to be a minor health setback, but it’s actually a very serious condition. If left untreated, AFib can cause blood clots and eventually lead to a stroke.
The only treatment for AFib used to be taking blood thinners. Through significant advances, however, researchers, scientists, and medical professionals have found new ways to treat it, including the use of implant devices.
Take a look at these articles to find out what you can expect down the road, and how to take a more proactive approach to your AFib treatment plan.
