Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is considered to be the most common type of heart arrhythmia or irregular heartbeat. This abnormal rhythm can generate a lot of problems in the pumping of blood through the heart and can have very serious outcomes.
To diagnose an AFib it needs to be “captured” on some type of heart rhythm recording. ECG/EKG stands for electrocardiogram the most important AFib diagnosis tool. It is used to sense and record electrical signals traveling through the heart which are telling about heart health abnormalities.
