Atrial fibrillation is an asymmetrical heartbeat, which induces the risk of blood clot, stroke and heart related complications. It is a very common type of heart condition which causes and irregular and abnormally rapid heartbeat. A usual resting heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute, but in atrial fibrillation the heart rate is more 100 beats per minute.
Causes of Atrial Fibrillation:
In a normal scenario when the heart beats, the muscular wall stiffens and contracts to push the blood out and all around the body. But when the heartbeat is irregular, the heart’s two upper chambers i.e. the atria beat frantically and sporadically, which makes them go out of sync with the two lower chambers, i.e. the ventricles. Generally, this condition arises in old age, but if the person is suffering from diabetes and hypertension may get a little early.
A major worry with irregular heartbeat is the probability to form blood clots within the atria i.e. the upper chamber of the heart. These blood clots may spread to other organs and causes ischemia i.e. blocked blood flow.
Signs of Atrial Fibrillation:
- Shortness of Breath
- Chest pain
If you have any signs of atrial fibrillation, there is a need to make an appointment with your doctor. The doctor will perform an electrocardiogram to conclude if your warning signs are linked to atrial fibrillation or any other heart rhythm disorder. In case you have chest pain, you should see an expert immediately. Consult our team of health care provider at Bansal Global Hospital.
