Many cardiologists were no doubt surprised to read accounts of the recent U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) Evidence Report on ECG screening for atrial fibrillation, which included this headline from the American Academy of Family Physicians: “USPSTF: Evidence Lacking on Screening for AFib with ECG”. Without knowing the specifics of the study, it would be easy to misinterpret this to mean that ECG screening does not effectively detect incidents of atrial fibrillation (AF).

Effective arrhythmia monitoring to reduce stroke risk

Detecting atrial fibrillation (AF) events, particularly paroxysmal AF, is especially challenging. Asymptomatic and episodic, PAF often goes undetected increasing the likelihood of cryptogenic stroke and TIA. But even more difficult, is capturing and correctly interpreting all of the heart rhythm data needed to accurately assess a patient’s risk for stroke.

Though the precise cause of ischemic stroke cannot be determined in 20 to 40% of cases (cryptogenic stroke), paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) is often a major contributing factor.  A wide variety of methods are used to detect PAF with monitoring durations that typically range from 1-30 days. If left untreated, PAF can lead to heart-related complications, including blood clots, stroke, and heart failure.
