Atrial Fibrillation - AFib
Understanding Atrial Fibrillation - AFib
Approximately 33.5 million people around the world have Atrial Fibrillation or AFib. The World Health Organization actually designated AFib as a global epidemic. When left untreated, AFib can lead to serious complications like stroke and heart failure. That’s why it’s critical that you seek help as soon as you suspect or start experiencing symptoms. It also important to understand your risk for getting AFib.
Our cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons at CHI St. Vincent in Arkansas have extensive experience in the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AFib or AF). It is one of the most common heart conditions we see and treat. We develop a personalized treatment plan for each patient.
We provide team treatment for our patients around the state of Arkansas. Only at CHI St. Vincent will you find cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons working together to develop your individual treatment plan. This collaboration provides you with the best outcome.
