Please jump for AF Association so that we can continue to support those affected by AF and help prevent life-threatening consequences such as stroke.
AF or 'atrial fibrillation' is the most common heart rhythm disorder, which occurs when chaotic electrical activity results in the heart pumping irregularly, too fast or too slow. If left undiagnosed and untreated it can lead to serious complications including stroke, heart failure, dementia and death.
The AF Association supports individuals affected by, or involved in the care of AF. The charity supports members through various means, including a 24-hour support line and comprehensive resources written by experts in the field and endorsed by the Department of Health.
Our campaigns and activities engage members in active promotion and education of AF amongst decision makers including Department of Health and Government, as well as informing the public of the condition and its potentially devastating consequences. We hold meetings for patients and medical professionals, singly and combined, around the world, offering patients and medical professionals a unique chance to discuss AF with leading experts, as well as the opportunity to share experiences with others.
