Learn About Your Monitoring and Treatment Options
Atrial fibrillation (also referred to as AF or Afib) is a common condition in which the upper chambers of the heart, or atria, fibrillate. This means that they beat very fast and irregularly so the heart can’t pump blood effectively to the rest of the body, and could lead to future health problems. In the COVID-19 environment, hospitals are still the safest place to be in the case of a medical emergency. If your Afib (atrial fibrillation) worsens or you are experiencing another medical emergency, please do not hesitate to call 911.
The American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association have pulled together a number of resources to help address any concerns you may have about a potential hospital visit.
