Atrial fibrillation increases stroke risk 5 times

Do you often feel your heart racing or flip-flopping in your chest? That abnormal heartbeat could be the wake-up call for a serious heart rhythm problem called atrial fibrillation (AFib). If your heart isn’t beating properly, blood clots can form, travel to the brain and cause a stroke.

Come hear Dr. Srinivas Iyengar, a board-certified cardiologist who is fellowship trained in cardiovascular medicine and interventional cardiology, describe the causes, types and diagnosis of AFib. Then learn about the latest advances in treating AFib, including WATCHMAN — a new minimally invasive procedure for people with non-valvular AFib.


BCH First in Boulder County

Reduces the risk of stroke from AFib. An alternative to long-term blood thinners.
