Atrial Fibrillation is the most common cardiac dysrhythmia and contributes to significant morbidity and mortality. Despite how common this condition is, the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation is not fully understood. To enable better treatment and prevention of AF a clearer understanding of the development and progression of atrial fibrillation is needed. The purpose of the poster is to highlight current understanding of the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation as well as the signs and symptoms, complications and comorbidities, and the importance of nursing care for AF.
