Long-term Outcomes Following Development of New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation During Sepsis
The authors explored a sample of Medicare patients who survived sepsis during hospitalization to assess the impact of afib developing during sepsis on long-term outcomes. Of nearly 139,000 sepsis survivors, 7% had new onset afib during sepsis. Of those pts, 55% were found to have afib after hospitlization. New onset afib during sepsis was associated with increased risks of subsequent heart failure, stroke, and death.
