ATRIAL FIBRILLATION

September is National Atrial Fibrillation Month

If you’re like most Americans, you have no idea what atrial fibrillation is or how to identify it. Fact: The average person with atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is 5 times more likely to suffer a stroke than someone with a regular heartbeat. This month, Capital Cardiology Associates is proud to team up with CBS 6 – Albany, and join the cardiac community in educating Americans on the most common type of heart beat abnormality that affects more than 3 million people in the United States: atrial fibrillation.
