Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a very common co-morbidity in patients with heart failure (HF). In patients with HF but with no prior history of clinically overt AF, subclinical AF of one hour or greater in duration is common (>10% of patients) and is associated with an increased risk of HF hospitalization.

The SCAF-HF study will aim to identify this subclinical AF to see whether it has impact on patient hospitalizations for heart failure.
