Self-Treatment Techniques in Patients with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation and the Probable Influence of the Autonomic Nervous System

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Self-treatment techniques in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) have seldom been described. It has been suggested that PAF attacks might be initiated by changes in the tonus of the autonomic nervous system. Our aim was to study patients’ measures to terminate PAF attacks and to evaluate the possible influence of the autonomic nervous system on start and stop mechanisms.
