Stroke is the 3rd leading cause of death in California and kills about 240,000 Americans each year, according to the CDC.

Many people are unaware that increased risk of stroke can be due to a heart condition called atrial fibrillation or “AFib,” which is a quivering or irregular heartbeat.

Dr. Joshua Leichman is an electrophysiologist with The Heart Rhythm Center of Temecula.  He came on the program to talk about the signs and symptoms of AFib and how you can reduce your risk of stroke.
