Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a disorder of the heart’s electrical system. The condition is characterized by an irregular heart rhythm that is either too fast or too slow. During AF, the two upper chambers of the heart (atria) beat out of coordination with the two lower chambers (ventricles) due to disorganized electrical signals, resulting in poor blood supply to the lungs and the rest of the body. The symptoms of AF typically include heart palpitations, irregular and fast heartbeat, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, dizziness, and weakness (Mayo Clinic, 2013; NHLBI, 2011). However, individuals with AF may be asymptomatic and not even know that they have the condition until it is identified through an electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) test.
