Atrial fibrillation

Arrhythmias are problems related to heartbeat or palpitations. The most common type of arrhythmias is atrial fibrillation (AF). The cause is a disorder in the electrical system of the heart.

What is atrial fibrillation

An irregular heartbeat is known as aerial fibrillation. This increases the incidence for heart disease and stroke. Fatigue, weakness and dizziness are all signs of an atrial fibrillation. It requires lifestyle changes and medications to treat it and often procedures such as desecration, cardioversion and surgery or pacemaker placement. Atrial fibrillation in the heart has an abnormal functioning electrical system. Other problems in health cause the heart to exit and make it difficult for the cardio vascular system to perform best.

Often, people with AF do not feel its symptoms. But you may experience

  • Nervousness – abnormal rapid heart rate
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling of weakness or difficulty in exercising
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Fatigue

AF may increase the risk of stroke. For many patients, it can cause chest pain, heart attack, or heart failure.

Physicians can diagnose AF with the help of family and medical history, physical tests, and a test called an electrocardiogram (IKG) to look for electrical waves of the heart. Therapies include medications and surgery to restore normal heart rate.

The following symptoms indicate atrial fibrillation:

  • Heart palpitation
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Affair
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain in chest

It is possible that atrial fibrillation does not show any physical symptoms and is still present in a patient.

Common causes of atrial fibrillation

The following are the most common causes of atrial fibrillation:

  • Family history
  • Increased alcohol intake
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • High blood pressure
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Damaged electrical system of heart

Risk factors of atrial fibrillation

The following factors may increase the likelihood of atrial fibrillation:

  • Old age
  • Obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Heart failure
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Ischemic heart disease
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Heavy alcohol use

Prevention of atrial fibrillation

Yes, it is possible to prevent atrial fibrillation by doing the following:

  • Avoid smoking
  • Healthy dietary intake
  • Avoid alcohol consumption
  • Maintaining normal body weight
  • Presence of atrial fibrillation

Generally 1 to 10 lakh cases. The most atrial fibrillation occurs in the following age groups:

Aged> 50 years. Normal gender. Atrial fibrillation can occur in any gender.

Laboratory tests and procedures for diagnosis of atrial fibrillation

The following laboratory tests and procedures are used to detect atrial fibrillation:

  • Electrocardiogram: to detect and record the electrical activity of the heart
  • Holter monitor: to record heart activity for a full 24- or 48-hour period
  • Event Monitor: Monitoring the electrical activity of the heart at certain times
  • Stress test: to diagnose when your heart is working hard and beating fast
  • Echocardiography: to look at the shape and size of the heart and to identify areas of poor blood flow to the heart
  • Transesophageal echocardiography: to detect blood clots that can form in the atria
  • Chest X-ray: to see pictures of the structures in the chest
  • Blood tests: To determine the level of thyroid hormone in the body and the balance of electrolytes in the body if there is no treatment for atrial decompression

Yes, atrial fibrillation causes complications if it is not treated. The list below is of complications and problems that can arise from untreated atrial fibrillation:

  • The strokes
  • Continuous atrial fabrication

The following procedures are used in allopathic  to treat atrial fibrillation:

  • Catheter Separation: To control atrial fibrillation and restores your heart to a normal rhythm
  • Surgical labyrinth procedure: to create electrical obstruction or obstruction in the heart atria
  • Atrioventricular node ablation: prevents the sending of electrical impulses from the atria to the ventricles

Self-care for atrial fibrillation

The following self-care tasks or lifestyle changes may help in the treatment or management of atrial fibrillation:

  • Eat healthy food from the heart: your overall heart health improves
  • Exercise regularly: increase your physical activity. I quit smoking: Prevents or cures conditions like high blood pressure and heart disease
  • Maintain a healthy weight: Reduces the risk of developing heart disease

Alternative medicine for the treatment of atrial fibrillation

The following alternative therapies and treatments are known to help treat or manage atrial fibrillation:

  • Do yoga: reduces oxidative stress and inflammation and reduces symptoms of symptomatic atrial fibrillation and non-atrial fibrillation episodes
  • Acupuncture: Reduces Recurrence of Ultralabular Fractionation after Cardioversion
  • Biofeedback therapy: increases parasympathetic activity and thus may decrease heart rate
