If you are taking anti-coagulation (blood thinning) medication eg. warfarin then you will need to stop this for one week prior to your procedure. If this has not been discussed with you or if you are unsure please contact the Cardiovascular Centre on (08) 8362 2272.

    Atrial fibrillation is a consequence of several reversible risk factors - high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, sleep apnoea, and excessive alcohol. Your management of atrial fibrillation must include strict control of these risk factors.
