Before you start treating make sure you ask a few question

Questions

  • Whats the cause? – treating the precipitant often sorts the AF (adding B-Blockers to Sepsis can make things worse)
  • Stable or Unstable?  – Electricity vs. Drugs
  • less than 48hrs? – Rhythm vs. Rate control
  • CHADS-VASC vs. HASBLED – Anticoagulation
  • Arrhythmia Clinic – referral form attached tho the PDF
