In more than 2 million Americans, the electrical system that controls the heart's pumping mechanism doesn't work correctly. This leads to an irrecgular heartbeat call atrial fibrillation or AFib. Having AFib puts you at a greater risk for stroke and other serious health concerns. Dr. Loka of the UVM Network - Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital cardilogy team will provide an overview of AFib discussing signs and symptoms, who is it at risk and treatment options.
