NICE Atrial Fibrillation Guideline Published

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has published the Guideline for Atrial Fibrillation (AF).

The publication was overshadowed by the introduction of the Guideline for Hypertension however the AF Guideline contains some very helpful information.

The Guideline includes information on:

  • Case finding and diagnosis with ECG
  • Treatment strategies for Paroxysmal AF, Persistent AF and Permanent AF
  • Stroke Risk Stratification
  • Thromboprophylaxis
  • Rhythm and Rate control

Action: All clinicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of AF will find the guideline of interest. The flowcharts contained within the Guideline are a useful aid to guide treatment decisions.
