Atrial fibrillation – irregular heartbeat – is a risk factor for stroke, heart disease, heart failure, and even death, and this risk is larger in women than men.

Irregular Heart Beat May Pose Bigger Threat to Women The world’s most common type of abnormal heart rhythm appears to pose a greater health threat to women than men, a new review suggests. Atrial fibrillation is a stronger risk factor for stroke, heart disease, heart failure and death in women than it is in men, according to an analysis published online Jan. 19 in the BMJ. The impacts of irregular heartbeat arrhythmia are common and may pose no threat.

Irregularities in a heartbeat can range from slight inconvenience to critical conditions including sudden cardiac arrest. An irregular heartbeat can also cause blood. Your heart’s lower chambers take too long to contract and release. This may cause dangerous rhythm problems and death.

TUESDAY, Jan. 19, 2016 (HealthDay News) — The world’s most common type of abnormal heart rhythm appears to pose a greater health threat to women than men, a new review suggests. Atrial fibrillation is a stronger risk factor for stroke, heart disease, heart failure and death in women than it is in men, according to an analysis published online Jan. 19 in the BMJ.
