Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac dysrhythmia encountered by both EMS and emergency department personnel. However, many providers lack understanding of the condition and its appropriate management. Providers will gain a better understanding for the etiology and physiology of atrial fibrillation as well as the acute and long-term risks that patients with atrial fibrillation face. Attendees will understand the treatment of both hemodynamically unstable and stable patients presenting with atrial fibrillation. Providers will also learn signs and symptoms that suggest atrial fibrillation as a presentation for more serious underlying medical conditions.
