Atrial Fibrillation - What it is

​Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an abnormal heart rhythm characterised by rapid and irregular beating. This may result in heart failure in acute and chronic settings. AF also predisposes a patient to blood clot formation in the atrial, particularly the left atrial appendage. In an event of clot embolization from the heart to the brain, stroke occurs.
