More than 2 million people suffer from atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat caused by abnormal electrical signals in the atria, the heart's upper chambers. This program analyzes the disorder, showing how the irregularity can create discomfort, blackouts, and blood clotting in the valves of the heart, potentially leading to a stroke. The video also features expert commentary from medical professionals, personal stories from patients, and detailed explanations of effective treatments for atrial fibrillation, including medication and a minimally invasive surgical procedure known as ablation therapy.
