Atrial Fibrillation Program

When your heart is aflutter, we can improve your life.

Recognizing, diagnosing and treating Atrial Fibrillation

Illustration of heartYou’ve probably seen TV commercials for “AFib” treatments, but perhaps you don’t know what that term means. If your heart beats too rapidly and irregularly, you may require treatment for Atrial Fibrillation.

When the upper part of your heart (the atria) beats irregularly and too fast, this can cause your heart to quiver (“fibrillate”). As a result, your most important organ can’t efficiently pump blood to the rest of the body, so the brain and other organs may not receive enough blood to operate their best.

VCU Health Pauley Heart Center’s Atrial Fibrillation Program offers a full spectrum of innovative therapies and treatments, and is focused on meeting the individual needs of each patient.
