Persistent Atrial Fibrillation

Persistent Atrial Fibrillation usually follows Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation unless the process is stopped by medication or cardiac ablation.

Persistent Afib is a sustained pattern of atrial fibrillation that does not return to normal by itself.

A person is usually said to have persistent atrial fibrillation if their heart rate does not return to normal sinus rhythm within 7 days when not treated.

Persistent afib is a when the abnormal heartbeat continues until it is returned to normal by some form of treatment.

In a lot of patients the Atrial Fibrillation will progress further to the point of Permanent Atrial Fibrillation. 

This type of afib is now mostly refereed to as Longstanding Persistent Atrial Fibrillation as most patients can now be cured by the newer anti-arrhythmic drugs, or catheter or surgical ablation.

One point I learned the hard way is that Atrial Fibrillation almost always progresses, so getting your heart back into normal sinus rhythm must be a priority.  The danger of letting the afib continue is the underlying damage and remodeling of the heart tissue that the too fast - abnormal - rhythm causes.  This further damage will almost certainly lead to bad consequences and even heart failure.

Afib can be cured or at the very least controlled but YOU must make the decision to be proactive and get the help you need.
