Oswego Health’s board-certified cardiologist Thomas Grady Jr., returns as the guest speaker at an Ask the Doctor presentation at 6 p.m. April 30 in the lower level conference room of the Oswego Health Services Center, which is adjacent to Oswego Hospital.
Dr. Grady will discuss the symptoms and treatment of atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation (AF or A-fib) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart beat).
A-fib may not have any symptoms, but it is often associated with palpitations, fainting, chest pain, or congestive heart failure.
In some people atrial fibrillation can be caused by otherwise idiopathic or benign conditions.
