2006 Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Atrial Fibrillation—ACC/AHA/ESC

December 31, 2006 6:20 AM CT

These guidelines are to assist healthcare providers in diagnosing, managing, and preventing atrial fibrillation. They are a report of the Task Force on Practice Guidelines of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association and the European Society of Cardiology Committee for Practice Guidelines. These guidelines were developed in collaboration with the European Heart Rhythm Association and the Heart Rhythm Society.

While these were developed for use by clinicians, there is much valuable information for patients and caregivers contained here.

Read or download the Guidelines from Circulation, a journal of the American Heart Association
