Abstract

Atrial fibrillation has been shown to increase the risk of thromboembolic complications, heart failure, and death. Establishing a diagnosis of atrial fibrillation in these patients may result in changes of management. The utility of different types of remote monitoring in diagnosing atrial fibrillation depends on the length and type of remote monitor used, with monitored telemetry giving the highest yield and short-term Holter monitoring the lowest. The choice of monitoring needs to take into account the data sought, the arrhythmia burden, and the cost.
