In brief: Medicine or CVX
Atrial fibrillation is an irregularly irregular rhythm of the heart.
The biggest risk is due to embolic stroke from stagnation of the blood in the atrium. This risk is decreased by anticoagulation with Coumadin (warfarin) or pradaxa. Medicines such as digoxin, beta blockers, and calcium channel blockers control the rate. Conversion can occur by adding other medication or by electrical cardioversion.
