Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation, also called AF or A-Fib, is a condition that is characterized by the atria (upper chambers) beating rapidly and irregularly. Risk factors for its development involve hypertension, valvular or coronary artery disease, obesity, sleep apnea and COPD. Episodes tend to be mild in the early stages but tend to progress over time. They include shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pains, lightheadedness and syncope. Left untreated, AF can lead to other heart-related complications, formation of blood clots, and strokes.

Sample Treatment Program


  • Routine bloodwork (CBC, SMA, lipid and hormonal profiles, coagulation factors, electrolyte levels)
  • Stress echocardiography
  • 24-Hour Holter Monitoring

Choice of treatment will depend on the results of the aforementioned investigations; accordingly, its cost will vary depending on the method selected. It can be medicinal (prescribed by consulting cardiologist), or you might be referred for a radiofrequency ablation. When ischemic heart disease is also present, a surgical ablation may be indicated.
