About this information

NICE guidelines provide advice on the care and support that should be offered to people who use health and care services.

This information explains the advice about atrial fibrillation that is set out in NICE guideline 180.

This is an update of advice on atrial fibrillation that NICE produced in 2006. It includes new advice on treating atrial fibrillation, including drugs that have become available since the 2006 guideline was published.

Does this information apply to me?

Yes, if you are an adult (aged 18 years or over) who has or may have atrial fibrillation. It does not cover people with atrial fibrillation caused by heart disease they were born with.
