YOUR ANSWER IS CORRECT!SORRY, YOUR ANSWER IS INCORRECT.

ANSWER: TRUE

AFib is a common type of an irregular heartbeat. There are two types of AFib: one caused by a heart valve problem, and one that is not.

The majority of AFib is not caused by a heart valve problem and is estimated to affect nearly 7 million Americans in 2017.

Question 2:
AFib symptoms may include fluttering or "thumping" in the chest, dizziness and shortness of breath.

YOUR ANSWER IS CORRECT!SORRY, YOUR ANSWER IS INCORRECT.

ANSWER: TRUE

While common symptoms of AFib include fluttering or "thumping" in the chest, dizziness and shortness of breath, it's possible that people with AFib have no noticeable symptoms. If you think you might have any of these symptoms, it's important to speak with your doctor who can review medical and family histories, complete a physical exam, and conduct diagnostic tests to determine if you have AFib.

Once diagnosed with AFib, doctors often consider risk factors and patients' clinical characteristics to estimate their future risk of stroke.

Question 3:
AFib not caused by a heart valve problem can cause blood clots, which may lead to a stroke.

YOUR ANSWER IS CORRECT!SORRY, YOUR ANSWER IS INCORRECT.

ANSWER: TRUE

With AFib, the top chambers of the heart (the atria) do not contract properly to push blood through the heart. As a result, some blood remains in the atria, which can pool, and clots may form. These clots can travel to the brain, blocking or limiting blood flow, and may result in a stroke, which can be debilitating.

Question 4:
People with AFib not caused by a heart valve problem are less likely to suffer from a stroke than people who do not have this condition.

YOUR ANSWER IS CORRECT!SORRY, YOUR ANSWER IS INCORRECT.

ANSWER: FALSE

People who have AFib are at a 5x greater risk of having a stroke than people who do not have this condition.

Question 5:
Strokes caused by AFib are less severe and are less likely to be fatal than strokes not related to AFib.

YOUR ANSWER IS CORRECT!SORRY, YOUR ANSWER IS INCORRECT.

ANSWER: FALSE

Approximately 15% of strokes are due to AFib not caused by a heart valve problem and these strokes are more severe, more likely to be fatal and can have a devastating effect on patients and their loved ones.

If you are living with AFib not caused by a heart valve problem, it's important to talk to your doctor about ways to reduce the risk of stroke.
