BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia worldwide and has a complex association with physical fitness. The relationship of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) with the risk for AF has not been previously investigated in population-based studies. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of CRF with incident AF. METHODS CRF, as assessed by maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) during exercise testing, was measured at baseline in 1950 middle-aged men… CONTINUE READING
