BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia commonly encountered in a primary care setting. Current screening is limited to pulse palpation and ECG confirmation when an irregular pulse is found. Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation will, however, still be difficult to pick up. With the advent of smartphones, screening could be more cost-efficient by making use of simple applications, lowering the need for intensive screening to discover (paroxysmal) atrial fibrillation. METHODS/DESIGN This ...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with adverse outcomes. Screening may lead to earlier recognition and treatment of asymptomatic AF. However, most evidence regarding AF applies to clinical AF, with symptoms or electrocardiographic diagnosis. Whether this evidence can be translated toward subclinical AF, without symptoms and detected by novel, more continuous screening devices is uncertain. The diagnostic yield of screening is determined by the screening population, tool, duration and freque...

Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia after cardiac surgery, yet the precise incidence and significance of arrhythmias after discharge home need to be better defined. Photoplethysmography (PPG)-based smartphone apps are promising tools to enable early detection and follow-up of arrhythmias. Objective: By using a PPG-based smartphone app, we aimed to gain more insight into the prevalence of AF and other rhythm-related complications upon discharge home after cardiac su...

Background Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for stroke. The current opportunistic screening procedure consists of pulse palpation and an electrocardiogram when an irregular rhythm is found. Smartphone apps that measure heart rhythm could be useful in increasing the detection of AF in a primary care setting. Objective We conducted a pilot study with the smartphone app FibriCheck to assess whether the introduction of such an app is feasible. Methods Four general practices across Fla...

Background: Opportunistic AF screening for primary stroke prevention is recommended in patients aged above 65 based on stroke risk models. Logistics hamper uniform screening with 12-lead ECG. Novel...
