Recently there have been a number of new beta blocker and heart rate studies, some of which are contradictory. The findings from some of these recent studies may apply to those with atrial fibrillation:
- Heart rates over 70 beats per minute predict heart attack risk
- Slowing the heart rate doesn’t protect those with hypertension—or does it?
- The impact of beta blockers on non-cardiac surgery risks
