This month, love is in the air, but if your heart skips a beat—or if you feel a quivering in your chest—it may not be from one of Cupid’s arrows. You could be one of the two million Americans with atrial fibrillation (a-fib). Come learn what causes this erratic heart rhythm and how some adults can be treated with medications, electrical cardioversion (shocks to the heart), ablation therapy and/or hybrid ablation surgery. Left untreated, a-fib can lead to congestive heart failure or stroke.

Don’t ignore what your heart may be telling you. Join us!
