    Hello there!

    Thank you for reaching out to the Support Network and for sharing this AFib resource. The American Heart Association also has a lot of resources for review at: https://www.heart.org/en/health-topics/atrial-fibrillation

    We hope you can find community and solidarity in this space!

    Best Wishes,

    Just a caution...not only is WebMD very shallow, it's often wrong as well. I went through the slides for afib treatment and lost count of the errors in just that short segment (most egregious was giving pacemakers a whole slide and insinuating that pacemakers are for afib - they are not - they are for slow heartbeat, unless being put in for doing an av node ablation).

    Personally, I'd recommend sticking to reliable nonprofit sources rather than for-profit sites that may be written by consumer journalists who know little to nothing about afib.
