Atrial Fibrillation & Compression

Heart Health with Compression Care

Atrial fibrillation, more commonly known as A-fib, is a condition where the heart beats irregularly and often abnormally fast. This can lead to a number of symptoms, including fatigue, shortness of breath, and chest pain. A-fib can also affect the flow of blood in the veins, causing problems with circulation and return of blood to the heart & lungs.

The irregular heartbeat of A-fib patients can cause the heart to not pump blood effectively, leading to a buildup of fluid in the lower extremities. This presents as swelling and aching in the lower legs and feet. Compression socks are a popular treatment option for this symptom, as they help to improve circulation by applying pressure to the veins in the legs. This pressure helps to reduce swelling and improve the flow of blood back to the heart.

Compression socks work by gently squeezing the legs and feet, which helps to prevent blood from pooling in the distal venous system & tissue, reduces swelling, and prevents the progression or development of venous disorders. This can help to reduce discomfort and prevent complications associated with poor circulation, such as blood clots or ulcers.

Compression garments come in a variety of sizes and pressure levels, so it is important to speak with your medical team and the Compression Care team to help determine your size and to find the right compression garment for your needs.
