The experts from Cardiac Partners at Cooper and Inspira held a live chat on Monday, February 11 to educate viewers on everything AFib - from risk factors to symptoms, diagnostic testing, treatment options, and more.
According to the CDC, as many as 6.1 million Americans are living with AFib. However, only 2.7 million have been diagnosed, since AFib symptoms can be subtle or sometimes nonexistent. Men and women with AFib are 5 times more likely to suffer from a stroke.
