Hey guys. Even though I learned (from a commercial on atrial fibrillation and yes, google) that someone with A.fib has a greatest risk for stroke, that wasn't a choice on the exam I took. I narrowed it down to two: Acute MI and pulmonary embolism.
I chose Acute MI mainly because I figured that pulmonary embolisms are more of a lung issue and doesn't necessarily have to do with the heart. I also know that arrhythmias can occur after a heart attack, but the question asked, "What would a person with A. Fib be at greatest risk for?"
Thanks for the link, Esme12. In doing a google search on Pulmonary embolisms though, I found an explanation on Wikipedia that talks about people developing PE as a result of obstruction of airflow to the lungs and pressure on the right ventricle. So my thinking is that Pulmonary embolism wouldn't be the right choice, mainly because A. fib would be an issue of the atriums of the heart.
