the condition.(7) It is projected that 5.6 million U.S. adults will have the condition by 2050.(2) Some people with AFib have no symptoms at all, while others experience one or more symptoms including, irregular heartbeat, fluttering in the chest, heart palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, weakness, faintness, fatigue when exercising or sweating.(1)

Team AFib Organizations

Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the founding sponsor of Team AFib, has joined with six leading patient advocacy organizations to help raise public awareness of AFib and its related increased stroke risk:

National Stroke Association is the only national organization in the United States that focuses 100 percent of its efforts on stroke. The organization achieves its mission to lower the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling community outreach programs, calling for continued improvement in the quality of stroke patient care and educating both healthcare professionals and the general public about stroke. Visit www.stroke.org or call 1-800-STROKES (1-800-787-6537) for more information. Join our Facebook page at www.stroke.org/facebook.

StopAfib.org founder, Mellanie True Hills, created the site as part of the American Foundation for Women's Health to share what she and other AFib patients have learned and to provide others with information and answers to their questions. StopAfib.org is a patient-to-patient resource to help patients understand and manage their AFib so it doesn't rule their lives. The site reaches out to patients, families, and caregivers, who all deal with the life-changing impact of AFib. StopAfib.org also contains an AFib Services Locator to help patients find the right resources for treating and managing their AFib. (www.stopafib.org)
