It is estimated that between 2.7 million and 6.1 million people in the United States have atrial fibrillation and this number is expected to increase as the population ages.
When a person has AFib, the normal beating in the upper chambers of the heart is irregular, and blood doesn’t flow as well. This increases the risk for DVTs, heart attack, and stroke even when the condition is asymptomatic.
By participating in this quiz, or screening or health assessment, I recognize and accept all risks associated with it. I understand that the program will only screen for certain risk factors and does not constitute a complete physical exam. For the diagnosis of a medical problem, I must see a physician for a complete medical exam. I release Deborah Heart and Lung Center and any other organization(s) involved in this screening, and their employees and agents, from all liabilities, medical claims or expenses which may arise from my participation. Thank you for investing in your health by participating today.
