Background: There are a paucity of data on the use of antiarrhythmics for atrial fibrillation (AF), particularly in view of new treatment guidelines recommending rate control over rhythm control. Aim: To investigate the use of anti-arrhythmics for AF in the local clinical setting. Method: A retrospective clinical audit of the medical records of 174 adult patients with primary or secondary AF was conducted at a large Sydney teaching hospital. Data were collected on patients characteristics, medical history, factors affecting treatment choice and clinical outcomes.
