Atrial fibrillation is the result of continuous and rapid activation of the atria by multiple asynchronous electrical impulses. This session reviews the aetiology, physiology and diagnosis of atrial fibrillation and the management decisions which relate to aetiology, chronicity and level of clinical risk. The session also explores the management of both acute and chronic atrial fibrillation, including pre-operative assessment for the patient with established atrial fibrillation and management of new onset of atrial fibrillation occurring in the peri-operative period.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the physiology of electrical impulses resulting in atrial fibrillation
• Diagnose atrial fibrillation from 12 lead ECG
• Outline the principles upon which clinical decisions are made with regard to the management of acute and chronic atrial fibrillation
• Describe both pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapeutic interventions used in the treatment of atrial fibrillation
• Make informed choices regarding the peri-operative management of a patient who presents in atrial fibrillation
