Risk factors, treatments for AFib

Millions of Americans suffer from atrial fibrillation (AFib), an arrythmia, or irregular heartbeat, that can lead to complications such as blood clots, stroke and heart failure.

Lehigh Valley Heart and Vascular Institute invites you to learn more about AFib risk factors and treatment from Babak Bozorgnia, MD, and Lynette Dondero, CRNP, both with Lehigh Valley Heart and Vascular Institute.

Did you know?

More than 750,000 hospitalizations and about 130,000 deaths occur each year because of AFib.

Lehigh Valley Heart and Vascular Institute is a leader in AFib treatment and recently started an AFib Center of Excellence, a specialized outpatient program for patients with newly diagnosed or uncontrolled AFib. It offers early access to electrophysiology advance practice clinicians with a focus on risk factor modification with fast-track referrals to partnering departments, including sleep and bariatric medicine.
