The new era in AF screening at home

Atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (also called AFib) is the most common form of irregular heart rhythm that often occurs with hypertension and could lead to a stroke if left unchecked.

For people already measuring blood pressure at home as part of their hypertensive care, regular electrocardiogram (ECG) screening can help to identify heart rhythm irregularities that can lead to more serious cardiac problems.

Learning Objectives

  • ESC 2020 guidelines for atrial fibrillation and the use of one lead ECG devices
  • Insights on the effect of AF for patients if not diagnosed/treated in time
  • How patients can benefit from new tools for screening AF
