Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common heart rhythm problem with symptoms including an irregular heartbeat, weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath and chest pain.

In Australia, atrial fibrillation (AF) is a more common cause of hospital admissions than heart attacks.

The need for more research into preventing and managing this cardiovascular condition is vital, with AF putting people at higher risk of stroke, heart failure, kidney disease, dementia and premature death.

Together with our Group charity Australian Heart Research, we are funding medical research focused on the prevention, early detection, management and treatment of atrial fibrillation.
