What is the target heart rate in a patient with chronic atrial fibrillation?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Strict heart rate control is not beneficial compared with more lenient heart rate control in well-compensated ambulatory patients with chronic atrial fibrillation. An acceptable target for resting heart rate is less than 110 beats per minute (bpm). (SOR: B, based on a single RCT and a practice guideline citing the same.)
