Unlikely: Atrial fibrillation can be provoked (though only in part) by certain stress and relaxation states, but since you don't have control of those in a dream, it's probably not worth worrying about.

Cva, mi: 1 - if the rate goes too fast...This can become a problem 2 - more commonly, when they beat so erratically, it gives an opportunity for the blood to clot in the atria, and then when that clot is pushed into the ventricles it can be pushed into the circulation where it may cause an mi or cva.

Try looking online: Years ago, listings used to be available only in printed form. By the turn of the century, lists had become available online everywhere. Now, some lists are only online, and no longer printed. County medical societies (or other local medical societies), universities, hospitals, insurance companies usually list doctors by name, specialty, and location. The better websites have find-a-doctor pages.
