Atrial Fibrillation causes more than 70,000 strokes each year in the United States, and every year more than 160,000 new cases are diagnosed. Whether Atrial Fibrillation happens at high or low heart rates, its irregular rhythm prevents the heart's ventricles from pumping blood efficiently to the rest of the body. Instead, blood pools in the heart, restricting blood flow to the rest of the body. Symptoms vary from relatively mild ones, such as fatigue and cough, to serious ones, such as angina and stroke. Atrial Fibrillation can manifest several ways. Elderly people typically develop Chronic Atrial Fibrillation. Excess adrenaline, released during a 'fight or flight' situation, causes Adrenergic Atrial Fibrillation. Neurogenic Atrial Fibrillation stems from an imbalance in the nervous system's regulation of the heart. Men between 30 and 50 are subject to Vagal Atrial Fibrillation after a meal or at rest. Young people can be affected by lone or primary Atrial Fibrillation, which presents no identifiable cause. Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation causes intermittent attacks of variable length. There are also other rare forms of Atrial Fibrillation. The likelihood of developing Atrial Fibrillation increases with age. Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation requires medication and, often, surgery. However, a variety of procedures are available. The most common initial step is cardioversion, which involves restoration of the heart's normal rhythm, accomplished either with medicine or electrically (direct-current cardioversion).
