Webinar: Fingers on the Pulse for AFib Awareness

Thu, 15 Jun, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Did you know that  Atrial Fibrillation,  the most common heart rhythm disorder and affects 11 million people across Europe. It is a heart condition that causes an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate and  is associated with a 5 times greater risk of stroke. AFib or AF ( as it is also known) is a very common cause of disabling stroke in Ireland, affecting tens of thousands of people,  with the vast majority being unaware of it. 

The good news is that even though Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a serious heart rhythm disorder it can be treated with medicines and medical procedures to regulate your heartbeat and reduce your risk of stroke. Although AFib is a long-term condition, if managed correctly, you can continue to lead a long and active life’ says Dr Lisa Hynes Head of Health Programmes at Croí.
