Atrial Fibrillation Aware Week for November

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an irregular pulse that might be a sign that you have an abnormal heart rhythm, one of the most common forms of this and a major cause of stroke. It’s usually caused by heart valve disease, high blood pressure, excess alcohol consumption or thyrotoxicosis (an overactive thyroid gland). However, it is also associated with coronary heart disease.
