How to Prevent Strokes in Treatment for AFib?

An atrial fibrillation(AFib) patient faces many potential complications, such as blood clot, stroke, heart failure, and other heart-related diseases. The number of people who suffer from strokes due to AFib is larger than those dying from heart failure caused by AFib. AFib patients are at high risk of having a stroke, which occurs when a blood clot is stuck in the brain, so it’s important to prevent strokes in the treatment of AFib.

Anticoagulant (blood thinner) is your best option. Its name implies that the function is to hinder the formation of blood clots. Moreover, it helps to lower your blood pressure, make your racing heartbeat slow and normalize your heart rate.
