About Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) seen by physicians. Because it is common in people over age 60, this "epidemic" will greatly affect the 'baby boomer" generation.
It is one of the most under treated heart rhythm disorders in America and accounts for about one-third of hospital admissions. 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. Treating A-Fib patients costs the U.S. $26 billion annually.
