Atrial Fibrillation or AFib is a heart ailment that affects many Americans. AFib occurs when the upper and lower chambers are not coordinated, causing the heart to beat too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly. Symptoms of AFib include shortness of breath, dizziness, sweating and fainting. A study found that one in four adult Americans over the age of 40 could develop an irregular heartbeat, especially if they are obese, have coronary heart disease, or are under constant stress.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 2% of people younger than 65 years old have AFib, while about 9% of people ages 65 and older have it.

Dr. Rick Henderson and Dr. Brian Miller of AnMed Health Arrhythmia Specialists use cutting-edge technology to treat irregular heartbeats. The technology involves a
CardioInsight mapping vest equipped with 252-electrodes. The mapping vest helps pinpoint the locations of electrical malfunctions in the heart that cause irregular heartbeats. The new
technology is less invasive, and the recovery time is quicker.

Those who think they may have symptoms of AFib should speak with their primary care physician for a referral. To find a doctor, contact AnMedHealth.org/Doctors or call AnMed Health
