Atrial fibrillation (also called AFib or AF) is a quivering or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Some people refer to AF as a quivering heart. An estimated 2.7 million Americans are living with AF.
OMICS International organizes 1000+ Global Events, Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies, and Publishes 700+ Open access journals, which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series, website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope and Importance
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common chronic arrhythmia, and its incidence and prevalence are expected to double within the forthcoming decades. Currently, approximately 250,000 patients have AF in the Netherlands, corresponding to a prevalence of 5.5% in patients older than 55 years. The vast majority of those patients can effectively be treated with pharmacological rate or rhythm control. However, there is a small subset of patients that remains severely symptomatic despite treatment with class 1 or 3 antiarrhythmic drugs. For those patients, an invasive approach can be indicated. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia. AF is associated with a substantial mortality, and with morbidity and hospitalisation from stroke, heart failure, thromboembolism and impaired cognitive function. From a large follow-up study over 40 years,AF was associated with a 1.5 fold (male) to 1.9 fold (female) increased risk of mortality after adjustment for pre-existing cardiovascular.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common abnormal heart rhythm. It may cause no symptoms, but is often associated with palpitations, fainting, chest pain, or congestive heart failure. The cause of an individual's AF may not be identified. AF may be identified clinically when taking a pulse, and its presence can be confirmed with an electrocardiogram (ECG) that demonstrates the absence of P waves and an irregular ventricular rate.
In AF, the normal regular electrical impulses generated by the sinoatrial node in the right atrium of the heart are overwhelmed by disorganized electrical impulses usually originating in the roots of the pulmonary veins. This leads to irregular conduction of ventricularimpulses that generate the heartbeat. AF may occur in episodes lasting from minutes to days or may be permanent in nature. Many medical conditions increase the risk of AF, in particular mitral stenosis.
The risk of stroke is increased fivefold in individuals with AF. The degree of increased risk may be substantial, depending on the presence of additional risk factors (such as high blood pressure). AF is often treated with medications to slow the heart rate to a normal range or to correct the heart rhythm to normal sinus rhythm. Synchronized electrical cardioversion can also be used to convert AF to a normal heart rhythm. Surgical and catheter-based ablation may be used to prevent recurrence of AF in some individuals.
The World Heart Federation (WHF) unites 200 members spanning 100 countries in the fight against cardiovascular disease Global Data research predicts the worldwide market for CMD devices will reach $1.2 billion by 2017. The global cardiovascular device industry is growing rapidly and is said that a growth of $15billion is made from 2010-2015 as per BCC research.Products included in this market are electrocardiograph monitoring equipment, which is set to see 4% growth by 2017 to be worth over $410 million.
