• I have atrial fibrillation - am I at greater risk of coronavirus infection?

    Atrial fibrillation does not increase the risk to get infected per se. Nevertheless, many atrial fibrillation patients are older and have comorbidities like hypertension and diabetes and, if infected, they appear to be more likely to have a more severe disease. Patients are advised to take general protective measures like washing hands frequently to avoid being infected. Learn more about COVID-19 and the heart here.

  • Very important!

    • Although it is recommended to avoid hospital visits, in case you do not feel well, you still need to seek help from your physician and if justified still go to the hospital.

    • In case you have to go to the hospital, always bring an up to date list of your current medication as some important interactions exist among antiarrhythmic drugs and medication for coronavirus infection.
