Atrial fibrillation is not necessarily related to you CF.  Your heart is made up of four chambers.  You have two atria and two ventricles.  When your heart is in afib, the atria quiver and don't empty completely.  There are many reasons that this may be occurring and your doctor can best determine how to treat it.  One problem with afib is the potential formation of a blood clot.  Anticoagulants are often prescribed as an adjunct to treat the condition.  My mother is a nurse, so I asked her how to answer your question.
