Atrial fibrillation (AFib), or irregular heartbeat, is a growing problem that affects more than 2 million people in the United States. AFib causes a variety of symptoms including:
- fluttering feeling in the chest
- chest pain/pressure
- feeling out of breath, weak, tired, faint, or lightheaded
These symptoms are serious and are a sign that the heart isn’t working the way it should.
There are always new ideas, medicines, and technologies for treating AFib. Sifting through information online can be confusing. That is why the Cardiac and Vascular Center at the University of Colorado Hospital is offering a free Patient Education Symposium.
Our goal is to take the mystery out of AFib, objectively and in plain English, and provide you with information that could improve your quality of life. There are in fact many new treatments for AFib. Some offer a temporary benefit; others provide a more permanent solution. We encourage you to be our guest for this free event:
