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)

Is atrial fibrillation or ventricular fibrillation deadlier?

Ventricular fibrillation (irregular heart beat) is more deadlier since ventricule is the ultimate pump that pumps blood to the rest of your body. If a person has atrial fibr (MORE)

Is atrial fibrillation worse that ventricular fibrillation?

No, ventricular fibrillation is worse than atrial fibrillation. This is because the ventricle is the chamber responsible for the main force pumping the blood out of the heart. (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?

What is fibrillation?

Fibrillation is what happens when the tiny muscle fibers in the heart begin to contract chaotically. Usually, these fibers contract simultaneously to pump blood. When they con (MORE)

Why is a ventricular fibrillation more likely to be life threatening than an atrial fibrillation?

During atrial fibrillation, the atrium does not contract. but blood  still flows passively into the ventricle which then pumps it to the  body. During ventricular fibrillati (MORE)
