About AF and stroke

Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm abnormality in the U.S.,(11) accounting for one out of every three hospitalizations for irregular heart beat.(11) The prevalence of atrial fibrillation in the U.S. is expected to increase 2.5 fold to 5.6 million by 2050, reflecting the growing population of elderly individuals.(2) Atrial fibrillation is the cause of up to one out of every six strokes in the U.S.(11) Strokes related to AF are twice as likely to be fatal(12) and twice as likely to be debilitating as non-AF related strokes.(13) Total annual costs for the treatment of AF are estimated to be more than U.S. $6.65 billion.(14)
