Here at Heart Rhythm Consultants we are excited about our new video series called “Matters of the Heart.” Last month, Dr. Mathew discussed the difference between an electrophysiologist and a cardiologist. This month, Dr. Mathew discusses what atrial fibrillation is, the various types of afib, its signs/symptoms, and how afib can increase the risk of stroke.

Each month we’ll break down a topic related to heart conditions and treatments so you can be better informed. If you have a topic suggestion or would like more information after watching a video, please contact us today.
