Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a type of heart arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat. This heart condition affects millions of Americans, and Indiana’s AFib rates are well above the national average of one to two percent. The state also has high rates of heart disease, obesity, tobacco use and diabetes – all risk factors for AFib. Other risk factors include alcohol abuse, family history of AFib, advanced age, thyroid disease, lung disease and sleep apnea.
