Description

Atrial fibrillation, or AF, is the most common type of cardiac (heart) arrhythmia. An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or with an irregular rhythm.

AF occurs if rapid, disorganized electrical signals cause the heart's two upper chambers-called the atria-to fibrillate. The term "fibrilliate" means to contract very fast and irregularly.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Define atrial fibrillation

2. Explain the heart’s electrical system

3. Discuss atrial fibrillation, including types of AF, causes, risk factors, signs and symptoms, and complications;

4. Explain diagnosis and treatment for AF

5. Identify ways to prevent AF.
