Heart Rate and Beta Blocker Studies For Those with Atrial Fibrillation

Recently there have been a number of new beta blocker and heart rate studies, some of which are contradictory. The findings from some of these recent studies may apply to those with atrial fibrillation:

  • Heart rates over 70 beats per minute predict heart attack risk
  • Slowing the heart rate doesn’t protect those with hypertension—or does it?
  • The impact of beta blockers on non-cardiac surgery risks
