Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)

Known as AFib, atrial fibrillation occurs when the heart races or flutters. AFib is a common heart rhythm disorder, or arrhythmia, caused by the malfunction of electrical impulses that regulate the heart’s blood-pumping action.

Experts at the Heart Rhythm Center at Abington Health use the newest advanced technology for diagnosing and treating atrial fibrillation, including electrophysiology to determine what’s causing the abnormal rhythm.

Symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation

You may have sudden dizziness, fainting or feel your pulse racing and heart beating. Symptoms may come and go, and worsen.

AFib Treatment

Our heart rhythm specialists may advise medication to manage atrial fibrillation until the condition becomes more severe. They are highly experienced with minimally invasive procedures to cure serious AFib conditions, such as pulmonary vein isolation and ganglion mapping, ablation therapies and Maze surgery.
