Atrial fibrillation in the elderly

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most common arrhythmias. It is an atrial rhythm with disordered activation and ineffective contraction of the atrium. It is an atrial rhythm disorder caused by many small reentrant loops caused by the atrium dominant reentrant loop, which is very common in the elderly. It is found in almost all organic heart diseases and can also occur in non organic heart diseases. The incidence rate of atrial fibrillation is high, and the duration is long. Heart failure and arterial embolism can also be caused by serious complications. It leads to disability or increased mortality of patients, which seriously affects human health.
