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 frequency. Longer and more frequent screening in a higher risk population leads to more effective screening. New devices based on photoplethysmography and single-lead electrocardiography increase convenience and the likelihood of cost-effectiveness.

Abstract Background Paroxysmal and permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) are common in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Objectives This study sought to determine the implications of left atrial (LA) myopathy and dysrhythmia across the spectrum of AF burden in HFpEF. Methods Consecutive patients with HFpEF (n = 285) and control subjects (n = 146) underwent invasive exercise testing and echocardiographic assessment of cardiac structure, function, and pericardial restraint. Resu...

Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality, even when symptoms are absent and the arrhythmia is unrecognized [e.g. subclinical AF (SCAF)]. Despite substantial evidence demonstrating an association between AF and adverse outcomes, the role of mass screening for previously unrecognized SCAF, such that its individual and population risks may be reduced by prophylactic therapy, remains uncertain. Many AF screening strategies exist, from pulse palpati...

With increasing use of handheld ECG devices for atrial fibrillation (AF) screening, it is important to understand their accuracy in community and hospital settings and how it differs among settings and other factors. A systematic review of eligible studies from community or hospital settings reporting the diagnostic accuracy of handheld ECG devices (ie, devices producing a rhythm strip) in detecting AF in adults, compared with a gold standard 12-lead ECG or Holter monitor, was performed. Bivaria...

Importance Atrial fibrillation (AF) affects more than 6 million people in the United States; however, much AF remains undiagnosed. Given that more than 265 million people in the United States own smartphones (>80% of the population), smartphone applications have been proposed for detecting AF, but the accuracy of these applications remains unclear. Objective To determine the accuracy of smartphone camera applications that diagnose AF. Data Sources and Study Selection MEDLINE and Embase were sear...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and prevalence is predicted to double over the next 30 years due to changing demographics and the rise in prevalence of risk factors such as hypertension and diabetes. Atrial fibrillation is associated with a five-fold increased stroke risk, but anticoagulation in eligible patients can reduce this risk by around 65%. Many people with AF currently go undetected and therefore untreated, either because they are asymptomatic or because t...

Abstract Background Recent studies have suggested a high prevalence of subclinical atrial fibrillation (AF) in various patient populations, and interest in AF screening has increased. However, knowledge about episode-duration is scarce, and risk factors for short or long subclinical AF episodes have yet to be recognized. Aims To assess AF by long-term continuous screening, and to investigate predictors of episodes lasting ≥6 minutes, ≥5.5 hours or ≥ 24 hours, respectively. Methods A total of 597...
