Treating Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation is diagnosed by recording the rhythm of the heart with an electrocardiogram, known as an ECG, or another type of heart monitor. An irregular pulse alone does not indicate atrial fibrillation because such a pulse can be caused by many heart rhythm disorders.
Not everyone with AF requires treatment. Those who do may need medication, including blood thinners to reduce the chance of a stroke. Other treatments such as electrical cardioversion or ablation
may be necessary.
