DIGITAL, RISK-BASED SCREENING FOR ATRIAL FIBRILLATION IN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY

Project description

Risk-based screening for atrial fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a type of arrhythmia that frequently affects ageing populations and carries a high risk of stroke, heart failure and dementia. The disease is on the rise, and it is estimated that by 2050 it will affect 5 % of the European population over the age of 65. Despite an EU guide for active ageing and disease prevention, there is no risk-based screening strategy. The EU-funded AFFECT-EU project intends to develop a precise, risk-based and ready for application AF screening algorithm for early AF detection. The project will use digital devices to combine the available information from the largest tests performed and multiple marker screening types of research across Europe, process the stratification of high-risk populations based on a personalised method, confirm recommendations and prove cost benefits.
