The quixotic quest to control atrial fibrillation
from Emergency Medicine News
Rory Spiegel, MD, writes, "Very little about the management of atrial fibrillation is an emergency, yet we in emergency medicine have embraced it as one. We gleefully bring to bear the full technological powers available to us to tame its irregular irregularity. Using this aggressive approach has proven that we are quite adept at controlling atrial fibrillation, discharging the majority of patients home in sinus rhythm. But to what end? The recent publication of the RACE-7 trial by Pluymaekers, et al., highlights just how absurd and wasted our struggles toward sinus normalcy are."
