GPs set for incentives to screen for atrial fibrillation


I diagnosed the onset of my own AF years ago and our ecg was confirmatory. In my view the ECG was useful and timely. I am more concerned about the quality of anti-coagulation. I urge that the calibration of INR test gear and the standardisation of anticoag medication should be available on line for all to check.
