Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia and causes significant morbidity and mortality. Early identification of AF may lead to early treatment of AF and may thus prevent AF-related strokes and complications. However, there is no current formal, cost-effective strategy for population screening for AF. In this review, we give a brief overview of targeted screening for AF, AF risk score models used for screening and describe the different screening tools. We then go on to extensively discuss the potential applications of machine learning in AF screening.
