ICD 10 For Atrial Fibrillation- I48 describes the diagnosis ‘atrial fibrillation and flutter’. An arrhythmia is a problem with the speed or rhythm of the heartbeat. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia. The cause is a disorder in the heart’s electrical system.

AF can lead to an increased risk of stroke. In many patients, it can also cause chest pain, heart attack, or heart failure. Doctors diagnose AF using family and medical history, a physical exam, and a test called an electrocardiogram (EKG), which looks at the electrical waves your heart makes. Treatments include medicines and procedures to restore normal rhythm.
Blood clots and stroke may be prevented by medications and/or a surgical procedure. Surgical procedures to treat atrial fibrillation:
- Atrioventricular Node Ablation
- Catheter Ablation
- Surgical Maze Procedure
Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation:
Paroxysmal refers to the frequency with which one experiences atrial fibrillation. Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation usually lasts hours or days.
Persistent Atrial Fibrillation:
Persistent Atrial Fibrillation refers to the permanent state of atrial fibrillation.
Chronic Atrial Fibrillation:
Atrial Fibrillation may be referred to as acute or chronic. Chronic means that it lasts a long time, or lifetime.
