The Heart Rhythm Society is the international leader in science, education and advocacy for cardiac arrhythmia professionals and patients, and the primary information resource on heart rhythm disorders.

Atrial Fibrillation                                                http://a-fib.com/

This site has been created by a patient who suffered from Atrial fibrillation before being cured by catheter ablation. It is intended largely for a non-medical audience, but still contains extensive and detailed medical information for the interested reader. All information is authentic and most is referenced, adding to the credibility factor. Highly recommended!
