Description

In atrial fibrillation (AFib), the heart's two small upper chambers (atria) don't beat the way they should. Instead of beating in a normal pattern, the atria beat irregularly and too fast, quivering like a bowl of gelatin. It's important for the heart to pump properly so your body gets the oxygen and food it needs.
