Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) seen by physicians. It's estimated that at least 2.2 million Americans have atrial fibrillation, and by 2050 that number will rise to over 7.5 million. Because it is common in people over age 60, the aging 'baby boomer" generation will be part of this coming "epidemic".
A-Fib is one of the most under treated heart rhythm disorders in America and accounts for about one-third of hospital admissions. Treating A-Fib patients costs the U.S. $26 billion annually. For more facts about Atrial Fibrillation, visit: www.A-FibFacts.info.
