Denver, Colo. — Atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, that occurs in individuals. AFib can lead to blood clots, stroke and even heart failure. More than 450,000 hospitalizations each year across the nation are a result of AFib and upwards of 158,000 deaths as well.
