Hypertension and AFib
1 in 4 middle-aged adults could develop AFib, which could increase the risk of stroke. Hypertension often comes with AFib, but goes regularly undetected. During this symposium the importance of early detection of hypertension and AFib, will be discussed.
Recall the pathophysiology of hypertension in the development of AFib and stroke
Review the latest guidance on the use of home screening for AFib
Select individuals likely to benefit from home blood pressure and ECG monitoring
Recognize the key features of one lead ECG that makes it a practical screening tool for AFib
