About this clinic

The Atrial Fibrillation Clinic provides care to patients with arrhythmias called ‘atrial fibrillation’ or ‘atrial flutter’. AFib, short for atrial fibrillation, is a heart condition where the heartbeat becomes irregular and fast. Normally, the heart beats in a steady rhythm, but in AFib, the heart's upper chambers (called atria) don't beat properly. Instead of contracting regularly, they quiver or flutter, which can cause blood to pool in the heart and increase the risk of blood clots.

Clinical trials & research

Advances in treatments for heart disease are all thanks to medical research. While participating in research is a decision you should make in consultation with your care team, there is much activity in this field. Please ask us about our research programs if you’re interested.

By taking part in research, you can help us all learn more about heart disease and find better ways to help people like you live and thrive. Even if you don't benefit directly, your participation can help care for future patients.
