The NICE clinical guideline on atrial fibrillation covers:

  • the tests that should be used to diagnose atrial fibrillation (AF)
  • the treatment people can expect to be offered depending on the type of AF they have, including AF that:
         - comes on suddenly (acute-onset AF)
         - lasts longer than a week or does not stop without treatment (persistent AF)
         - is more longstanding (permanent AF)
         - comes and goes (paroxysmal AF)
  • the treatment people can expect if they have AF then have a stroke.
     
It does not specifically look at the treatment of AF for people who are under 18 years of age, or whose AF is caused by heart disease that they were born with.
