Learn About Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AF or afib) is the most common irregular heartbeat. It is characterized by heart palpitations, dizziness, and shortness of breath. This progressive and debilitating disease can lead to stroke, heart failure, and dementia and can double your risk of death. In addition, afib takes a physical toll, an emotional toll, and a financial toll on those living with it—not just the patient but the family, too.
You have come to the right place if you wonder whether you are at risk for afib or whether you might have it, or if you want to know how to manage it. StopAfib.org is here to help increase your knowledge about afib, improve your quality of life if you live with it, and help you avoid an afib-related stroke.
