Low serum levels of potassium are associated with a higher risk of atrial fibrillation.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24012173

Sleep apnea is closely linked to afib. It puts strain on the upper chambers of the heart.

Dehydration can trigger atrial fibrillation. Low levels of minerals in the blood , especially potassium, can trigger an abnormal heart rhythm, and when you’re dehydrated, electrolytes are depleted. Dehydration is most common in hot weather, especially when exercising outdoors, but it can also result from an illness that includes vomiting or diarrhea.

In one study, researchers followed 176 people with atrial fibrillation with implanted defibrillators that turn on when an episode occurs. Two years’ worth of data from the study showed that there were more attacks of afib when air pollution was high. These findings were published in 2013 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

For some people with atrial fibrillation, any amount of alcohol is too much. If your heart is very sensitive to alcohol, even half a glass of of a beverage containing alcohol may be too much.

Stress is a common trigger of atrial fibrillation. Too much stress is like a shot of adrenaline to your heart. Identify your personal stressors and take steps to avoid or defuse them. Any type of surgery or medical procedure can be a trigger. Travel and fatigue are stressors.

Caffeine,smoking,exercise, and over-the-counter cough and cold medications can trigger atrial fibrillation.

Add sleep deprivation to the list.

I had to hospitalize a number of people over the years when they had even a single night of sleep deprivation that resulted in A fib recurrence.

The cold trigger suggests a vagal nerve origin for afib. Besides maintaining electrolyte levels, another way to help keep the vagal nerve peaceful is to treat SIBO, so the gut isn’t a source of irritation.
