Atrial Flutter

Atrial flutter usually is caused by an abnormal electrical circuit in the right upper chamber of the heart or right atrium. This circuit may cause the atria to beat very fast (250 to 300 beats per minute). During atrial flutter, the heart rate can be normal or as fast as 150 to 200 beats per minute. The rhythm can be regular or irregular. Normally, atrial flutter is not life-threatening, but it can increase your risk of stroke.
