Atrial fibrillation is an irregular and chaotic rhythm from the top chamber of the heart. It can produce palpitations and a sensation of an irregular heartbeat in some patients. In others it causes decreased energy level, breathlessness, fatigue, and even congestive heart failure without a sensation that the heart rhythm has changed. The most dreaded complication of AF is stroke which is prevented with blood thinners or more recently implanted devices for stroke prevention.
