Atrial fibrillation

Overview


Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a heart condition in which the heart beats irregularly and often abnormally fast. Symptoms can include palpitations, tiredness, and breathlessness. People with AF are at increased risk of stroke. We interviewed 38 people about their experiences of AF, plus one partner.
