  • Atrial flutter

    Atrial flutter is an abnormal cardiac rhythm characterized by rapid, regular atrial depolarizations at a characteristic rate of approximately 300 beats/min and a regular ventricular rate of about 150 beats/min in patients not taking atrioventricular (AV) nodal blockers. It can lead to symptoms of palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue, or lightheadedness, as well as an increased risk of atrial thrombus formation that may cause cerebral and/or systemic embolization.

    Atrial flutter occurs in many of the same situations as atrial fibrillation, which is much more common. Atrial flutter may be a stable rhythm or a bridge arrhythmia between sinus rhythm and atrial fibrillation. It may also be associated with a variety of other supraventricular arrhythmias. In atrial flutter, your heart's upper chambers (atria) beat too quickly. This causes the heart to beat in a fast, regular rhythm. Atrial flutter is a type of heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia) caused by problems in your heart's electrical system. Atrial flutter is similar to atrial fibrillation, a common heart rhythm disorder.

    Based on a 1998 survey of 211 general practices  representing a total population of 1.4 million patients in England and Wales, 1.28% of the total population of the UK has AF . A more recent study in England revealed that the overall prevalence of AF among practices uploading data from 2009 to 2012 was 1.76% . The prevalence of AF roughly doubles with each advancing decade of age, from 0.5% at age 50–59 years to almost 9% at age 80–90 years . The incidence of AF in a cohort of 15,406 adults aged 45–64 years living in the west of Scotland and screened between 1972–1976 and 1977–1979  was 0.54 cases per 1000 person years
