About this Course
Objective of the course: To be able to Diagnose and Treat Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia. Disorder in the heart's electrical system is the cause for AF.It can lead to an increased risk of stroke.
In many patients, it can also cause chest pain, heart attack, or heart failure.
Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disturbance, affecting around 1 million people.It can affect adults of any age, but it's more common in older people. It affects about 7 in 100 people aged over 65. More men than women have atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation is more likely to occur in people with other conditions, such as high blood pressure (Hypertension), Atherosclerosis or a Heart valve problem.
This course will enhance the Management of Atrial Fibrillation and Antithrombic therapy post PCI of Afib patients.
