Why do you have to Take Blood Thinners for Atrial Fibrillation?

Blood Thinners for Atrial FibrillationIf not treated, Atrial Fibrillation can cause dangerous blood clots. When those clots travel to and lodge in the brain, they can cause serious, and sometimes fatal, strokes. Blood thinners prevent clots from forming by making blood less likely to stall – and less likely to clot – when travelling through the heart and arteries.

The arteries are like your body’s roads, transporting important nutrients to and from different organs and tissues. Blood thinners help patients with Atrial Fibrillation keep those internal highways free of potentially deadly traffic jams.
