Hospital admissions in Australia related to atrial fibrillation increased by almost 75% in ten years, according to a study by cardiology researchers.

Atrial fibrillation is a heart rhythm disorder, which, if left untreated, can be fatal.

The research team evaluated hospitalisations due to the disorder in Australia from 1998 to 2008.

Senior author of the study, professor Prashanthan Sanders, said the study highlights the enormous public health burden of atrial fibrillation on hospitals and the need for better treatments and preventative strategies for this increasingly common condition.
