  • OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the impact of intermittent atrial fibrillation (AF) on health-related quality of life (QoL). BACKGROUND Intermittent AF is a common condition with little data on health-related QoL questionnaires to guide investigational therapies. METHODS Outpatients from four centers, with documented AF (n = 152), completed validated QoL questionnaires (Medical Outcomes Study Short Form 36 [SF-36], Specific Activity, Symptom Checklist, Illness Intrusiveness and University of… CONTINUE READING
