Predicting Risk of Atrial Fibrillation by Measuring Oxidative Stress
Jennifer Johnson, Emory University
Measuring oxidative stress may help doctors predict the
risk of developing atrial fibrillation, the most common heart beat
irregularity. Research from Emory University School of Medicine has identified
a connection between oxidative stress and enlargement of the heart's left
atrium, which leads to atrial fibrillation.
National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
