Podcast episode 19: Atrial Fibrillation

In this episode, Peter and Stuart talk about atrial fibrillation (AF).

AF is the most common cardiac arrhythmia that Peter and Stuart see in their patients. In this podcast, they explain the different types of AF - new onset, paroxysmal, persistent or chronic - and how to determine if someone might have AF.

They also discuss the management of AF, such as oral anti-coagulant therapy, and whether to follow a 'rate' or 'rhythm' control strategy.
