Improving prevention of strokes: new developments in the field of early detection of Afib

Hypertension and AFib

AFib is the leading cause of stroke, contributing to 20%-30% of all strokes. Furthermore, strokes from this condition are more disabling and more often fatal than strokes with other causes. Consequences of strokes can severely compromise the survivor’s ability to live their life at the fullest, as a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. While AFib can present no subjective symptoms in many cases, those commonly associated with the condition include palpitations (being aware of your heart beating fast), breathlessness, chest pain and fatigue.
