A heart that beats in regular intervals is said to be in normal sinus rhythm. A-fib is an abnormal heart rhythm that causes the two upper chambers of the heart, the atria, to quiver instead of contracting. This happens because the electrical signals that regulate the atria become erratic and start firing at 300 to 400 times per minute, resulting in a fast, irregular rate in the lower chambers that can in turn lead to severe symptoms. The triggers for atrial fibrillation are usually found in the pulmonary veins, which drain oxygenated blood from the lungs into the left atrium.
When the upper chambers of the heart beat too fast or uncontrollably, blood may pool in the left atrial appendage and form clots, increasing the risk for stroke. About 15 percent of strokes occur in people with a-fib. In addition, if you have a-fib, you may not feel well because your heart is unable to pump effectively.
