Example text

Because of its prevalence, hypertension accounts for more AF than any other risk factor (4%) (Benjamin et al. 994). Elevated systolic blood pressure (BP), mean arterial BP, and even high normal BP are known risk factors for the development of AF (Grundvold et al. 202). The risk of AF in patients with hypertension without any other predisposing 3500 Permanent 3000 Number of patients profiles in atrial fibrillation CHAPTER 4 Clinical 38 infarction (LV scar) are at high risk for VT and/or VF, and sudden cardiac death (SCD).

The presence of tolerable symptoms and the absence of acute instability may allow rate control and anticoagulation (if warranted) to be initiated as an out-patient with the patient then followed up comfortably with an office visit in 24–48 hours. It is also dependent upon prior information about the patient such that sinus node and conduction system status as well as patient reliability regarding medication compliance and office appointments is known and acceptable. Lastly, if the patient is first encountered and managed in a setting where a cardiologist is not involved with his or her care, the AFNET/EHRA consensus document clearly indicates that every patient with AF should then be seen by and managed with a cardiologist.

The severity of the symptoms depends on the haemodynamic effect of AF (see section on AF and HF). Many patients remain asymptomatic during AF (silent AF) or are asymptomatic between symptomatic episodes. The risk and adverse events in asymptomatic AF patients remain the same or even higher than symptomatic ones (because they are often untreated). On physical examinations the pulse is faster than expected and ‘irregularly irregular’. Precipitating causes of episodes such as exercise, emotion, or alcohol need to be identified.
