What is Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation is a condition of the heart where the upper chamber beats in a disorganized fashion. Whereas the normal heartbeat starts in the right upper corner of the atrium and progresses in an organized fashion through the upper chamber and then to the lower chamber, atrial fibrillation is more like rain drops on a pond. It's noise electrically through the upper chamber. It causes the heart to beat in a sometime rapid and irregularly irregular manner.
