Rythmol Rhythm Control Agent
It Varies: The most important treatment is stroke prevention, which is usually done by medications (aspirin or warfarin). Sometimes rate control medications are used, like metoprolol. If the af is severe enough, stronger anti-arrhythmic medications are used, like propafenone. If these do not work, catheter ablation may be recommended. Pacemaker and av-node ablation may be used as a last resort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unlikely: Atrial fibrillation does not usually lead to VF unless the person also has WPW syndrome. If one has not been diagnosed with WPW, the chances of atrial fibrillation going into ventricular fibrillation is very low. Of course, if one has a fast heart rate for a long time, one can develop CHF and then possibly VF, but not because of the AF. Rate control prevents CHF or retards its development. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
