Join us for the next NIPC Series: Atrial Fibrillation – Patient Management Under the New Guidelines on Thursday, May 27th, 19:00 – 20:30 IST.
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart arrhythmia affecting over 11 million people across Europe. 1 in 4 people over the age of 40 are likely to develop AF during their lifetime. 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.
