A trial fibrillation (AF) is a ubiquitous yet diverse cardiac arrhythmia whose incidence increases with age; with most forms of cardiac and some pulmonary diseases; and with a number of metabolic, toxic, endocrine, or genetic abnormalities. 1,2 Classification of clinical AF subtypes can be achieved on the basis of the ease by which episodes of the arrhythmia terminate as follows 3: “Paroxysmal” AF refers to episodes that generally stop spontaneously after no more than a few days. “Persistent… CONTINUE READING
