Checklists: helping you and your doctor reach a diagnosis
For many reasons, reaching the correct diagnosis for a cardiac arrhythmia can be difficult and time-consuming. To facilitate rapid diagnosis whenever possible, Arrhythmia Alliance worked in partnership with medical experts to develop a series of checklists. These are designed to provide patients with practical information and to help them prepare for GP and hospital visits. The checklists help gather important information about symptoms and aim to ensure that time spent with a doctor is as valuable as possible.
Has your doctor told you that you have, or that you might have, AF?
If you have been recently diagnosed as suffering from atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, or your doctor suspects you have atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, this checklist is intended to help you understand the condition, feel at ease with the tests you will be given and the treatments your doctor may suggest.
