Left untreated, atrial fibrillation, or AFib, can cause life-threatening complications, such as stroke or heart failure. For millions of people, a steady and predictable heartbeat has been replaced by an irregular or extremely rapid one. These abnormal heart rhythms are called arrhythmias, and the most common form is AFib.
