Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most diagnosed cardiac arrhythmia that clinicians and patients should be educated on. Due to the increased morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs associated with AF, it is important to have a solid understanding of the signs, symptoms, diagnosis, underlying pathophysiology, significance of the pathophysiology, treatments, and nursing implications that are involved with this cardiac arrhythmia. One of the most significant complications due to AF is stroke, thus stroke prevention measures such as oral anticoagulation should be considered.
