Dr Jose Joglar (UT Southwestern, US) joins us virtually to discuss the 2023 guidelines for atrial fibrillation (AF) diagnosis and management.
These guidelines are an update to the 2014 document covering the full spectrum of managing patients with AF, from prevention to lifetime interventions, to rhythm and rate control, as well as special populations. A new classification of AF has been created, with an emphasis on the complexity of the disease. The updated guidelines also highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to AF Management, from prevention to lifestyle modification, as well as rhythm management.
1. What is the background for the update? What is the scope of the guideline?
2. What are the most impactful changes compared to previous guidelines?
3. Can you summarize the key recommendations?
4. What strategies can help clinicians incorporate the recommendations into practice?
Recorded remotely from Dallas, 2024.
