Management of patients with atrial fibrillation in general practice

Cover Page

Abstract


The lecture presents modern concepts of diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation; principles of choosing the tactics of management of atrial fibrillation in general practice. The epidemiology of atrial fibrillation, risk factors, causes and mechanisms of its development are considered. The classification of atrial fibrillation is given. The tactic of diagnosis of atrial fibrillation is described. The principles of treatment of atrial fibrillation, including the anticoagulant therapy and pharmacological cardioversion, are presented.
