ConclusionsArrhythmias, including clinically significant abnormal rhythms, were common. Tachyarrhythmias were more frequent during dialysis and the immediate postdialytic period. The relevance of these findings to clinical outcomes requires additional study.

CONCLUSIONS: Increasing age, male gender and pre-existing AF independently predicted permanent AF development. Occurrence of permanent AF was significantly associated with reduced survival. PMID: 31527561 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

BioSig Technologies and Mayo Clinic have joined forces once again, this time to develop a new product pipeline to support some of the more advanced features of BioSig's Pure EP System. Samuel Asirvatham, MD, Mayo Clinic's vice-chair of innovation and medical director of the electrophysiology (EP) laboratory, will lead the new development program. The company previously signed a 10-year collaboration agreement with Mayo Clinic in March 2017. "The new product that we intend to develop under the latest licensing will seek to significantly advance the current arrhythmia treatments," said Kenne...

ConclusionThere has been a significant increase in primary prevention practices for AF and this is reflected in the number of stroke patients presenting with known AF on a NOAC, however more needs to be done as there are still patients who have AF that are not being anticoagulated in the community.
