Standstill: The extremely rapid rates of atrial fibrillation are in fact so fast that they create two problems: the top chamber is not mechanically moving very far at all, so it cannot shake clots loose, and the overactive atrial tissue secretes chemicals which increase the likelihood of clot formation. These processes come together to substantially increase stroke risk. ...Read more

The cardiac cells that make up the sinus node (the automatic pacemaker) on the top part of your heart, as well as the rest of the heart are subject to the toxic effect of alcohol and thus can fibrillate(shaky) just as your brain cells do that make you unable to walk-a-straight-line test! cut it down. Drink responsibly. Good luck. ...Read more
