means the upper chambers of the heart, or atria, quiver instead of beat.
They will be looking for ischemia or A-fib
[atrial fibrillation]; they're not looking for long QT syndrome, arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy, or abnormal T waves.
More than 3,300 participants developed A-fib
in the course of the study.
You need to screen older women for a-fib
and have a much lower threshold for treatment.
com)-- To increase awareness and an understanding of Atrial Fibrillation, A-Fib
Understanding heart failure, CHD, arteriosclerosis, A-fib
Heart Applications for Failure, A-Fib
, and other Arrhythmias.
This sophisticated procedure is most helpful for individuals with intermittent (paroxysmal) a-fib
who do not tolerate AAD's or experience symptom control with their use.
symptoms include heart palpitations, dizziness, chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, fainting and lightheadedness.
In the patient with A-fib
, blood clots can form in the atria, or top chambers of the heart, and these clots can then travel out of the heart into the systemic circulation, causing a pulmonary embolus (blood clot in the lung).
People with symptomatic A-fib
, as it is commonly called, may experience periodic palpitations (a sense that the heart is pounding or fluttering), chest discomfort, shortness of breath, unusual fatigue or dizziness.
Using the new research system, Emory clinicians can view a real-time digital visualization of the patient's analyzed heart rhythm and spot A-fib
in its earliest stages.
