Can you inform this man with a recent diagnosis of atrial fibrillation (AF)?

  • 13 December 2018Medium
A normally fit and healthy 68-year-old man who recently attended a routine check-up was noted to have an irregular pulse. He does admit to having alcohol binges occasionally. A subsequent ECG revealed the diagnosis of AF and he has just been assessed by a cardiologist who has started him on regular anticoagulation therapy and has discussed cardioversion with him. He is upset by all this and feels he does not need any treatment. Which of the patient’s statements about AF is the only correct one?
