The Heart of the Matter – Recognizing Atrial Fibrillation (AF) from an ECG.

AF is the commonest cardiac arrhythmia. It increases the risk of embolic stroke five-fold. Opportunistic diagnosis and confirmation of the arrhythmia through ECG recording is therefore an important skill for healthcare professionals across primary and secondary care. This workshop will help you to identify the ECG appearances of AF and atrial flutter.
