Know Stroke Podcast Ep 34 -Spotlight on Afib Awareness

September is Afib Awareness Month. Atrial fibrillation (Afib) is the most common irregular heartbeat and is characterized by heart palpitations, dizziness, and shortness of breath. Afib is sometimes silent and may not exhibit symptoms at all yet it increases stroke risk and can lead to heart failure, kidney problems and dementia. It can also increase your risk of death so early detection and treatment is critical to reduce risk.
