A Klein et al, 2021. Social Risk Factors and Atrial Fibrillation, Card Electrophysiol Clin, Volume 13 (1).


Modifiable risk factor management is becoming one of the 3 treatment pillars in atrial fibrillation management along with anticoagulation as well as conventional rate and rhythm control strategies. Preventive therapies, such as reducing blood pressure and treating obstructive sleep apnea, are paramount in the strategy of preventing atrial fibrillation. Identification of new modifiable risk factors and triggers also could help in the global strategy to reduce atrial fibrillation. This article covers alcohol intake, tobacco smoking, caffeine, chocolate, cannabis use, and air pollution as social risk factors related to lifestyle habits that potentially could contribute to atrial fibrillation development.
