Is the term Afib used to describe a specific instance when the heart is beating erratically? Or is it used to describe a condition that causes irregular heart beats(ectopic, flutter, rapid, etc)?
I had an episode of Afib a few months ago, but am taking flecenaide to help control and lessen the arrythmia. Without the flecenaide, I have persistent ectopic beats. So does that mean those beats are from Afib? Or are they merely irregular beats that could potentially turn into Afib?
