Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Explains Atrial Fibrillation
As an experienced Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney, I often get questions about an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation. You have four chambers in your heart, the upper chambers are called the atria, sometimes people have a little bit of fibrillation or movement in their upper chambers and your physician may refer to that as atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation can cause clots to form in the upper chambers of your heart so your physician may prescribe Coumadin to make your blood thin, so that it’s less likely that you will form clots. If your physician prescribes Coumadin ask questions about how you will be monitored.
If you have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and start Coumadin, contact our experienced Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney.
