Mercy's Guide to Understanding AFib

AFib is the most common irregular heart rhythm disorder, especially in people over 65 years of age. Mercy’s Guide to Understanding AFib includes important information you need to know about atrial fibrillation, such as:

  • How your heart works
  • Types of AFib
  • Symptoms
  • Risk factors
  • Diagnosis and treatment
  • What to ask your doctor

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with AFib, or if you suspect you may have AFib, our guide may help you better understand this condition and what can be done to manage it.

We’ll help you keep the beat.
Mercy treats heart rhythm problems like AFib with an entire team of board-certified heart experts, including cardiologists and electrophysiologists. They work closely with your primary care doctor to provide the best treatment options, so you can keep living a full life.

Effective Monday, March 23, in compliance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Mercy will be postponing and rescheduling all non-urgent outpatient visits and elective surgeries. As we have more information, we will provide a date of when these services are expected to resume.
