  • CONCLUSIONS: There is uncertainty about the benefits and harms of screening for AF with ECG. Although screening with ECG can detect previously unknown cases of AF, it has not been shown to detect more cases than opportunistic screening that is focused on pulse palpation. Most older adults with previously unknown AF have a stroke risk above the threshold for anticoagulation. Multiple treatments for AF reduce the risk of stroke and all-cause mortality, and increase the risk of bleeding, but trials have not assessed whether treatment of screen-detected asymptomatic older adults results in better health outcomes than treatment after detection by usual care or after symptoms develop.
