Atrial Fibrillation is the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia and is becoming one of the most important public health challenges, affecting over 11 million people across Europe1

Atrial Fibrillation can be a debilitating condition for patients, significantly impacting their quality of life. But beware that up to 30% of people with Atrial Fibrillation are asymptomatic and uncovering these patients remains a challenge. Early detection could allow for earlier management and avoid later complications.2

The risk of Atrial Fibrillation increases with age, doubling each decade after 553  What other risk factors are important to consider?

Up to 30% of all strokes occur in people with Atrial Fibrillation.4,5 What is the best way to assess their risk and what interventions are recommended to prevent the occurrence of stroke?
