    • Atrial Fibrillation

      Atrial fibrillation is a type of arrhythmia in which the electrical signals in the atria, or the two small chambers of the heart, are fired in a very fast and uncontrolled manner.

    • Atrial Flutter

      Atrial flutter is a common type of arrhythmia, where your atria beat more quickly than they should. Although usually not life-threatening, the condition makes it difficult for your heart to pump blood efficiently.

    • Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)

      An atrial septal defect is an opening in the dividing wall between the two upper chambers of the heart known as the right and left atria.

    • Heart Disease and Pregnancy

      In pregnancy, blood volume increases greatly. This extra fluid puts an increased workload on the heart and may cause problems for a woman with heart disease.

    • Sick Sinus Syndrome

      Sick sinus syndrome is a type of abnormal heartbeat, or arrhythmia. If you have this condition, you may have episodes when your heart beats very slowly, stops beating for a short while, or beats very rapidly.
