09 - Atrial Fibrillation

Back to Cardiac Resources List

 

The normal rhythm of the heart is called Sinus Rhythm. In Sinus Rhythm, the sinus node (an area in the top right chamber of your heart) generates an electrical signal, which travels across both the right and left atria (top chambers), causing these chambers of the heart to contract. This contraction pumps blood from the right and left atria, into the right and left ventricles (bottom chambers).
