Atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation. Artwork of a section through a human heart during atrial fibrillation, a rapid, irregular heartbeat. In the background are ECG (electrocardiogram) traces, showing irregularity of the heart rhythm (arrhythmia). The electrical impulses that coordinate heart contractions start at the sinoatrial node (red, upper left) and run down to the atrioventricular node (red, upper centre). When the atria (upper heart chambers) contract irregularly and too rapidly, the ventricles (lower heart chambers) have trouble keeping pace. The main symptom of atrial fibrillation is palpitation. ECGs are used to diagnose heart conditions such as arrhythmia

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the intricate details of atrial fibrillation, a condition characterized by a rapid and irregular heartbeat. The artwork showcases a section through a human heart during this arrhythmia, with ECG traces in the background illustrating the irregularity of the heart rhythm. The image highlights the electrical impulses that coordinate heart contractions, starting at the sinoatrial node in red at the upper left and running down to the atrioventricular node in red at the upper center. However, when atrial fibrillation occurs, causing irregular and rapid contractions of the upper heart chambers (atria), it becomes challenging for the lower chambers (ventricles) to keep pace. Atrial fibrillation is often accompanied by palpitations, making it an important symptom to watch out for. To diagnose such cardiac conditions including arrhythmias accurately, electrocardiograms (ECGs) are commonly used as they provide valuable insights into abnormalities within our hearts. This stunning illustration not only serves as an educational tool but also emphasizes how vital it is to understand and monitor our cardiovascular health. By shedding light on this complex disorder within our bodies' most crucial organ—the heart—it reminds us of both its fragility and resilience while highlighting advancements in medical science that aid diagnosis and treatment.
