A fibrillation, also called AF and A-fib for short is a quivering, a fluttering of the atria, the upper two chambers of the heart. These are random, inefficient contractions. The atria quiver instead of pumping blood in an organized fashion. It's a common arrhythmia and there are several approaches that can be taken for treatment and management.
