A public education forum brought to you by the Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society
Keeping Singapore’s ageing population in mind, the Singapore Heart Foundation organises the Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS) Public Education Forum to raise awareness on Atrial Fibrillation (AF).
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart rhythm disorder that affects 1 to 2% of Singapore’s population. Patients with AF have an 8-fold increase for risk of stroke and the risk of developing AF increases with age – the condition affects as many as 1 in 20 people over the age of 65. In Singapore, the number of seniors aged 65 years and above is estimated to reach 1.8 million people by the year 2030.
Join us at this enriching forum to learn more from the experts on identifying and dealing with this dangerous condition.
