What is Atrial Fibrillation?
FINAL CONTENT TO COME (this section)
The heart is a muscle that functions as a double-sided pump and consists of four chambers. The two upper chambers are called the left and the right atria and the two lower chambers called the right and left ventricles. The right side of the heart pumps blood to the lungs to pick up oxygen, while the left side of the heart pumps blood rich in oxygen to all parts of the body. The left ventricle has to pump in a strong and effective manner to pump the blood to the farthest parts of the body.
