Preventing Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) Related Strokes

Published April 19, 2022

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is one of the most common types of arrhythmias—or irregular heartbeats—and causes the heart to have an irregular rhythm and often beat rapidly. AFib can be physically exhausting, scary, and disabling and raises the risk of heart failure, dementia, and stroke. But with proper treatment, these risks can be significantly decreased and people with AFib can live healthy and active lives. This film focuses on stroke prevention in AFib. You can also view this film that gives an overview of AFib, and these 30-second and 60-second PSAs.
