MONTEREY, Calif. — A “racing” heart, shortness of breath, and weakness may be signs of atrial fibrillation, a problem with the heart’s electrical system.

Dr. Eugene Liu will talk about symptoms and treatment, including medication and other interventions, during a free talk at Community Hospital’s Peninsula Wellness Center. Atrial fibrillation may come and go or be chronic, and while not life-threatening, sometimes requires emergency treatment.

The talk is from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Monday, October 21 at Peninsula Wellness Center, 2920 2nd Avenue, Marina. It is free but registration is required by calling (888) 452-4667.
