Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an abnormal fast irregular heartbeat. An abnormal heartbeat rhythm is called an arrhythmia. A normal heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats a minute (bpm) when you’re resting. In AF the heart rate can sometimes be very fast (often between 140 and 180 bpm) as well as being irregular.

It is recommended that some patients with AF take a Direct Oral Anticoagulant (DOAC) or a Vitamin K antagonist. If you need to start this medication you will be contacted in order to make an appointment with one of our Clinical Pharmacists.
