Atrial Fibrillation (A Fib) Treatment

In making the diagnosis, a patient’s doctor will consider the severity of symptoms and whether they are new or have been going on for some time. The patient may be referred to a specialist in heart disorders (cardiologist) during this evaluation. Choice of treatment for atrial fibrillation depends on the type of A fib, the severity of symptoms, the underlying cause, and the patient’s overall health. General guidelines for A fib treatment are available, but most doctors modify guidelines to best treat the individual.
