af and strokeWhat is your AF patient’s stroke risk?

The risk of stroke is not homogeneous and varies considerably depending on the presence of several demographic and clinical factors. Independent risk factors for stroke in patients with Atrial Fibrillation include congestive heart failure, hypertension, age ≥75 years, diabetes mellitus, prior stroke or transient ischemic attack, vascular disease and female sex.

The CHA2DS2-VASc score is recommended for stroke risk prediction in patients with AF, by the European Society of Cardiology guidelines for the management of atrial fibrillation.

Don’t worry, the questionnaire is safe and anonymous and none of your patient data will be captured.  

After all of the questions have been completed, it will be possible to download a file showing you all of the entries as well as your AF stroke risk. It can be used as a reference to inform your patient about his/her stroke risk as well as to discuss his/her best treatment options.
