Can an Irregular Heartbeat Increase a Person’s Stroke Risk?
Posted Nov 01 2013 12:00pm
According to the American Heart Association about 15 percent of strokes happen because people with an irregular heartbeat, also called atrial fibrillation- AFib for short-, are not treated for that condition. In fact, that risk is five times higher for individuals with AFib than for those without it.
