Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased risk of stroke and appropriate management can help prevent strokes. Discover:
- The relationship between AF and stroke, and the related burdens
- Recommendations on AF screening, diagnosis, treatment, and stroke prevention
- ESC/EHRA and ACC/AHA/HRS guidelines on individualising treatment to optimise outcomes and reduce stroke risk
- Footage of expert interviews with Professors John Camm, Robert Storey and Renato Lopes
This Learning Zone reviews the epidemiology, pathophysiology, screening, diagnosis and management of atrial fibrillation, including the latest anticoagulant guidelines, to help you balance the risks and benefits of the various invasive and pharmacological options. The Learning Zone may help you deliver optimal care to help prevent strokes in your patients living with common, sustained cardiac arrhythmia.
