Guideline Update for the Management of Atrial Fibrillation – Carmine D'Amico, D.O.(Required)
A 68-year-old female presents to her primary care physician’s office for a follow-up visit for occasional dizziness, not accompanied by any other symptoms. Her medical history is significant only for hypertension. Her only medications are lisinopril/hydrochlorothiazide 20/12.5 mg PO daily and a calcium supplement with vitamin D daily. Physical examination reveals: blood pressure 126/84 mmHg, pulse 68 bpm, and respirations 12 per min. There is no jugular venous distension, lungs are clear to auscultation bilaterally (no crackles or wheezes), cardiac rhythm is regular, a soft S4 is present, and there is no S3 or murmur. Abdominal exam is unremarkable. There is no peripheral edema and distal pulses are intact in both the upper and lower extremities. Orthostatic blood pressure measurements are negative for orthostatic hypotension. Her lab work (including a CBC, CMP, thyroid function panel, and hemoglobin A1C) is within normal limits. An echocardiogram obtained last month revealed normal left ventricular systolic function and no significant structural abnormalities. A 30-day event monitor, completed last week, revealed a total of four atrial high- rate episodes, the longest of which lasted four minutes and thirteen seconds. None of these episodes correlated with patient reported symptoms. Based on the above information, which of the following is the most appropriate recommendation for the management of this particular patient?
