Question

What is atrial fibrillation?

Answer

The heart's rhythm is regulated by a metronome. Some people can develop a chaotic rhythm of that metronome, where by the top part of the heart can become chaotic and the heartbeat becomes irregular. This means that instead of beating regularly like a drum the heart can jump all over the place.
