Can a patient have atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter?

In a word - YES. I have or "had" atrial fibrillation long term for years. I was hopefully cured by an ablation procedure 5 months ago. I had the characteristic erratic heart (MORE)

Is atrial fibrillation dangerous?

Atrial fibrillation (A-fib) is a very dangerous condition. In A-fib, the heart is trying to pump too fast, but is uncoordinated. This means that blood is not circulated around (MORE)

What is atrial fibrillation?

Atrial fibrillation is where the electrical impulses within the atria become very rapid and irregular. Atrial rates are usally between 300- 400 BPM or more.   How it can ha (MORE)

What are the ECG characteristics of Atrial fibrillation?

On the ECG the diagnostics for AFib will be; and atrial rate of 400-600 beats per minute, with a variable ventricular rate, the ventricular rate will be irregularly irregular (MORE)

What does the secretion of atrial natriuretic peptide do?

When the walls of the atria are stretched by increased blood volume or blood pressure, the cells of the atria produce ANP (atrial natriuretic peptide). ANP's main function is (MORE)

Is protein a peptide?

The links in a protein (amino acid) chain are called peptide bonds. These are any combination of amino acids in which the amino group of one acid is united with the carboxyl g (MORE)
