Atrial Fibrillation (AF)

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. AF may come and go (paroxysmal AF) or may be permanent (BHF, 2020). One of the major concerns of AF is the potential to develop blood clots within the upper chambers of the heart that can travel to other areas, blocking blood supply (ischemia).

Through the aims of the stop-a-stroke campaign the CIC looked to support the cluster with the opportunistic capture of abnormal pulses for patients attending the surgery. As the chances of AF increase with age, the Influenza vaccination Programme was deemed to be an ideal opportunity to capture a large cohort of patients.
