Jeffrey Tabas: Sure, I'm speaking about updates in the emergency management of atrial fibrillation in 2021. It's at our Boston Scientific Assembly upcoming at the end of October. I focus on 3 main areas that provide challenges in the emergency management of atrial fibrillation. One is how to rate control and what are some of the pitfalls in controlling someone who presents with a fast rate, (2) the role of anticoagulation and a simple way to think about who should get anticoagulated, and then (3) ED cardioversion and the benefits in doing so in the emergency department.
