Charlotte, N.C.- Last year, more than 5.1 million Americans were affected by atrial fibrillation (AFib). It’s a condition where the heart beats in a rapid and irregular rhythm. This irregular rhythm affects blood flow to the lungs and body. Atrial fibrillation causes more than 350,000 hospitalizations a year.
