Atrial fibrillation is a substantial health-care challenge and is considered to be a global pandemic, as prevalence rates have increased greatly1 and atrial fibrillation-related hospitalisations outnumber those of major cardiac conditions such as heart failure and myocardial infarction.2 Atrial fibrillation confers an increased risk of stroke and mortality; it therefore needs to be detected not only to manage the arrhythmia but also to prevent comorbidities and death.3 A 10-second, 12-lead electrocardiograph (ECG) in current clinical practice is unlikely to reveal possible atrial fibrillation if not present in this short monitoring time.
