Single time point case finding for Atrial Fibrillation: A review of methods of delivery and devices

There are many different new and emerging technologies designed to assist in the identification and monitoring of AF. This report (produced by the by HIN), captures current practice, summarises the evidence base and provides measures to support decision making that tailors the technology and software design to local service needs. The report includes:

  • National and international evidence for AF screening
  • Strategies for AF detection and predicted number needed to screen during AF detection programmes
  • Technology to facilitate AF case-finding
  • Evidence for technology accuracy and use in community settings to increase the detected prevalence of AF
  • Enablers and barriers for using detection devices in real world settings
  • Checklist to support informed decision making when choosing a device
  • Product specifications for selected devices
