International experts in anticoagulation launch an interprofessional Guideline to support patients receiving oral therapy
Atrial fibrillation (AF), a heart rhythm disorder where the atria beat irregularly and chaotically decreases the heart's blood-pumping efficiency, is the most common sustained heart rhythm disturbance (arrhythmia). People with AF are three to five times more likely to suffer a devastating, debilitating, disabling and often fatal stroke than people without AF. Consistently, 20-30% of all strokes are AF related.
