Dr. Chi-Ming Chow, MD, FRCPC Cardiologist AFib and Stroke Risk Assessment With CHADS for Family Physicians

AFib occurs in about 300,000 patients in Canada, and usually it occurs among patients who are older. When you get up to age 80, it can be up to 10 to 15 percent of patients who have atrial fibrillation.

It is a condition when the atrium is actually contracting irregularly, and then it can go in a very fast heart rate. And sometimes it leads to patients having palpitations, shortness of breath, and dizziness, and sometimes chest discomfort as well.

It is also associated with an increased risk of having a stroke, up to about two to four times. So it’s important to actually have yourself evaluated when you have atrial fibrillation, to assess the need for controlling your symptoms, as well as reducing the risk of having a stroke.

Dr. Paul Dorian, MD, CM, MSc. Cardiologist Considering The Right Afib Patient for Ablation Treatment

A cardiac pacemaker is the natural pacemaker of your heart, which controls your heart rate. An artificial pacemaker is a small device that’s surgically placed under the skin of the chest and uses electrical pulses to help control your heartbeat. People with an arrythmia (irregular heartbeat) may require a pacemaker. An arrythmia can be caused by a heartbeat that's too fast (tachycardia) or too slow (bradycardia).
