Do you have a history of atrial fibrillation and syncope? Can atrial fibrillation actually make you pass out? The answer to that is, YES! I've seen three different ways in which atrial fibrillation can make a patient pass out.
Many people believe that atrial fibrillation is the result of traditional risk factors such as older age and high blood pressure. A common question that I get online as well as in person with patients is, “Why did I get afib?” But there’s actually more to it than meets the eye.
