What is Atrial Fibrillation (AF)?

AF is the most common arrhythmia in the UK, affecting at least 1% of the population and rising to 10% of persons aged over 75 years. This condition is predicted to increase in the population three-fold by 2050. AF is caused by the activation of abnormal electrical circuits in the atria of the heart, causing an irregular, and often rapid pulse.
