Atrial fibrillation ( or AF) is a serious heart condition that affects an estimated 300,000 plus people in Australia and 35,000 in New Zealand. People with AF experience abnormal or irregular heartbeats. They often describe the experience as feeling like their heart flip-flops or beats very fast, though some people affected with AF don’t notice any symptoms at all.
