Less Worry

The most common long-term cardiac arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation (AF), which causes symptoms for some, but many remain completely symptomless. 1/4 of the strokes are caused by this type of cardiac arrhythmia. In the EU area only, every year about 600 000 individuals get a stroke, of which 2/3 could potentially be prevented by quick arrhythmia detection and early treatment. This means 100 000 prevented stokes per year within the EU.
