What is Atrial Fibrillation? Atrial fibrillation is a condition that disrupts your heartbeat. A glitch in the heart’s electrical system makes the atria beat so fast they quiver, or fibrillate. This causes the ventricles to beat out of sync.*AFib can increase your risk of stroke, heart failure, or blood clots. What is Ventricular Fibrillation? The heart's electrical activity becomes disordered. The heart's ventricles contract rapidly. The heart pumps little to no blood.
