Look for Atrial Fib Patients Who May Need Anticoagulation
Many atrial fibrillation patients aren't getting appropriate anticoagulation...with warfarin or a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC).
Less than half of high-risk atrial fib patients are on an anticoagulant...and DOACs (Pradaxa, etc) are often dosed incorrectly.
Look for atrial fib patients who may need an anticoagulant. Most are likely to benefit...such as those with a prior stroke or TIA, hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, or age 65 or older.
