Screening for Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial Fibrillation ScreeningAtrial fibrillation also known as irregular heartbeat is a condition that can cause a stroke. A stroke results from the disruption of adequate blood flow to the brain. Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of heart arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat) and can cause a clot that travels to the brain where it results in stroke.

What you can learn

We screen for atrial fibrillation using ECG electrodes. This ECG is a screening to identify the presence or absence of an atrial fibrillation at the time of the screening.

The screening is painless and simple. You will be asked to roll up your sleeves and roll down your socks. You will lie on an exam table while a member of our trained staff applies electrodes above your wrists and ankles.


Who should have atrial fibrillation screening?

Anybody who has risk factors for stroke, atrial fibrillation, or carotid artery disease should have this screening. 


How often should you get screened?

This is a personal decision based on your risk factors and previous screening results. Many of our customers choose to have annual screenings as part of their regular healthcare regime. Remember that getting screened for atrial fibrillation plus carotid artery disease provides you with a more complete assessment of your stroke risk. 


How to prepare

When you go to have an atrial fibrillation screening, remember:

  • Wear a shirt that is open at the collar and short-sleeved.
  • Do not wear a turtleneck.
