How to treat (AFib)

There are several options for atrial fibrillation medications and treatments that can help manage your condition.

You may not need treatment for an abnormal heart rhythm if you don't experience symptoms, if you don't have other heart problems, or if the atrial fibrillation stops on its own.

Some heart-healthy lifestyle changes to maintain a normal heart rhythm include:

  • Getting regular physical activity

  • Eating a heart-healthy diet

  • Managing high blood pressure

  • Maintaining a healthy weight

AFib medication

What is atrial fibrillation (AFib)?

Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of heart arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) that can disrupt normal blood flow. AFib is caused by an extremely fast and irregular heartbeat, usually exceeding 400 beats per minute. The interruption of normal blood flow can increase the risk of blood clots and stroke.

For people with AFib, abnormal electrical signals make the atria contract irregularly and much faster than normal in the heart's upper chambers. 

You can reduce the risk of an abnormal heart rhythm by:

  • Treating any underlying health conditions (i.e., treating high blood pressure by taking blood pressure medications)

  • Quitting smoking

  • Avoiding alcohol or only drinking occasionally.

  • Taking atrial fibrillation medications, such as blood thinners or beta-blockers, as prescribed

What to know about Atrial fibrillation

  • What causes AFib?

    Atrial fibrillation happens when the regular beating in the heart's upper chambers (the atria) becomes irregular, and blood stops flowing regularly from the atria to the heart's lower chambers (the ventricles). AFib may happen in brief episodes or be a permanent condition.

  • What is a dangerous heart rate with AFib?

    With atrial fibrillation, your heartbeat may exceed 140 beats a minute when resting. Sometimes, your heartbeat may beat extremely fast, reaching 500–600 beats per minute.

  • How is AFib diagnosed?

    AFib is typically diagnosed through a physical exam and electrocardiogram (EKG), a test that records your heart's electrical signals. If AFib doesn't occur during the EKG, your doctor may recommend:

    • A Holter monitor or event monitor to record your heartbeat.

    • An echocardiogram (ECG), which uses sound waves to produce a moving image of your heart

    • A transesophageal echocardiogram, an invasive version of an echocardiogram

    • A stress test, which monitors your heart during exercise

    • A chest X-ray to examine your heart and lungs

    • Blood tests to diagnose underlying thyroid or metabolic conditions

  • What causes AFib to come and go?

    Atrial fibrillation is associated with multiple triggers, including:

    • Alcohol and caffeine consumption

    • Stress

    • Sleep issues

  • What does AFib look like on an ECG?

    Atrial fibrillation shows a chaotic heart rhythm on an ECG, irregularly appearing and no P waves from the top of the heart.
