Atrial Fibrillation Monitoring
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a heart rhythm disorder (originating from the atria) that causes an irregular and often fast rhythm that may feel as though your heart is ‘fluttering’. Due to the irregular and rapid activation of the atria, contraction diminishes, causing slowing or even stagnation of the blood flow.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of irregular heartbeat. It affects up to 500,000 people in the UK and becomes more likely with increasing age.
Atrial fibrillation is often associated with a wide range of conditions including:
High blood pressure
Coronary artery disease (narrowing of the heart arteries)
Heart valve disease
Having undergone heart surgery
Chronic lung disease
Cardiomyopathy (disease of the heart muscle that causes heart failure)
Congenital (present at birth) heart disease
Pulmonary embolism (blood clot in lungs)
Why should I be screened for Atrial Fibrillation?
Early diagnosis of AF can help to reduce the risk of severe complications, such as heart failure or stroke
Some people don’t show the symptoms of AF (such as chest pain, tiredness, dizziness), however, AF can be detected during a test
