Q:

What is the connection between atrial fibrillation and stroke?

A:

Atrial fibrillation is considered a big risk factor for strokes. With atrial fibrillation, a person's chance of stroke is 5 times higher due to the blood pooling that happens in the heart with atrial fibrillation. This pooling allows the blood to potentially form clots which get released in the bloodstream and can cause a stroke.
