What is Atrial Fibrillation or A-Fib?
Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) occurs when the upper chambers of the heart are beating at an excessive rate, which could cause blood to pool in the left atrial appendage, presenting the risk for a clot and ultimately increasing the risk of a stroke.
The causes of atrial fibrillation are typically found in the pulmonary veins, which are where oxygenated blood is drained from the lungs into the left atrium.
The most common symptoms of A-Fib include irregular heartbeat, weakness, fatigue, low blood pressure, dizziness and fainting. Humble Cardiology Associates is happy to help with the diagnosis and treatment of Abdominal Atrial Fibrillation.
Here at Humble Cardiology Associates, we utilize a comprehensive set of tests to ensure that we can properly diagnose A-Fib and provide the appropriate treatment for each individual patient. Our staff will use the following forms of testing to diagnose your condition:
- Echocardiogram (Ultrasound of the Heart)
- Nuclear Stress test
- Blood Work
- Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG)
